Space is a fun venue for listening to music. The sound is good, and if you get a seat, it is also a comfortable room. The musical performers are varied and interesting.

The "space" offered in this venue is perfect: "space" for several tables, two bars and standing room. The sound is great and they host some wonderful shows. The prices for cocktails are adult prices, rather than those for a college student budget, but they are...More

I strongly recommend Space. It has a great atmosphere and awesome live music. You can order food from the pizzeria next door. You feel like you are in a hip part of Chicago but you are actually on the North Shore.

Great "space" including a delightful restaurant with great pizzas, and a musical space that offers wonderful entertainment from popular to classical. There is something here for everybody.

Saw Jim Messina here recently; great concert and venue. Space is intimate, so a lot of artist/audience connection, even at the back. Kind of hard for wait staff to serve, but they manage.
