General Info

Established in 1992 and moved to a better location in 1993, this Ukranian Village outpost is cozy, comfortable , friendly and music minded.  The space is not fancy, decorated with concert posters and Christmas lights (year round), but the sight lines are exceptional.  Music is 7 days a week and ranges from local acts to international groups rounding out their calendar while passing through Chicago.  You are sure to experience a mix and diversity of music.  Several theme festivals (jazz, blues, pop) have been successfully held over the years.  They are really something to look forward to.  Sundays are DJ nights.  For those not interested in music there is an arcade area with pool table, arcade games and comfy couches.  Good selection of beer and wines including some that are very inexpensive.

Oh, and there is food.  Appetizers, salads, sandwiches and pastas at the sister club, Bite, conveniently located next door.
