We went here on a Sunday so it was really quiet. The concept is different and the music is actually great. Drinks a bit pricey but this street is more expensive anyway. Be fab for a group night out!

If you're in Chicago, don't miss this place. A group of 4 of us went here the night before New Years Eve and it was amazing! We reserved a table in advance which I highly recommend doing as there was only standing room. The drinks were pricey - to the point there were no price s on the menu, but... More

Everyone on stage was so talented!! Seemed like they knew every song ever made. And can play every instrument. Drinks were a very fair price and the service was quick. Also the music never stopped and we were there for 4 hrs. Highly recomend this place if you like live music.

What a great place to unwind. Great music! Can't wait to go again! I don't drink but those with me thought they were great. Hefty cover charge but for a fun night splurge worth it

This place was so much fun! It may have been the Cubs were heading to the World Series, nonetheless it was a great time in River North. Go here.

I had high expectations for the New Years Eve party, and for the most part Howl at the Moon in Chicago met them. For the "Just Dance" ticket, we got 3 drink coupons each, which were more than enough. The bartenders were very generous, and they were timely despite being slammed. The overall show was excellent, and despite standing the... More

The place is an all right kind of bar, they do charge cover to enter, which my throw of some people... but if you pass those 2 things you'll find that inside there is a band playing... and they're great! They play pretty much anything requested to them (in a 20 dollar tip) but they play great. They change instruments... More

I travel frequently to Chicago for business. I've taken any number of business colleagues to this fantastic place. It's a good place, great entertainment, and easy on the wallet. It's always on my list, if I'm on the Northside.
