Went to see The Revolution when they came to Chicago. The sound was fantastic and to be able to be close to stage was out of this world. The place felt safe and I was able to relax to enjoy an excellent show. The drinks...More

I've seen quite a few performers here over the years and I'm always pleased when an artist or band I like books this place. For me the main appeal is the intimate vibe you get from a venue that is mostly standing-room. Between the main...More

Fortunate to see The Brian Jonestown Massacre at the best music venue in Chicago. The history, classic architecture, acoustics, lights and overall ambiance of this fine establishment make the Metro the best place to see and hear a band in live action. Not to be...More

When many small bands come to Chicago, lots of them wish to play at the Metro and the feeling is always the same for fans. It's small, so be prepared to get hot and sweat. It's right by Wrigley Field, so of course it's right...More

Wrigleyville
This energetic sub-neighborhood, part of the larger
Lakeview neighborhood, has a split personality. In the

historic Wrigley Field for live music. If there’s a
