Lincoln Park, Chicago –
A combination bar, restaurant, and music venue developed by the same group behind Schubas Tavern, Lincoln Hall offers live alternative, indie, rock, or acoustic concerts every night, as well as laid-back dining and drinking.
Located in the heart of thriving Lincoln Park, the 8,400-square-foot venue features a roster of both upcoming local acts and internationally recognized headliners that brings in a diverse range of music lovers.
A modern restaurant draws young professionals and local yuppies ready to enjoy a relaxed after-work meal or catch the game on one of several TVs, while easygoing music fans and hipsters hang out over a few drinks at the bar before the musicians take the stage in the adjoining concert hall.
Although fans can get a prime view of the band from the wraparound mezzanine, where two TVs also broadcast a live feed of the concert, most of the punks, hipsters, frat types, and techno-fanatics – depending on the night – prefer to crowd closer to the stage, dancing emphatically to their favorite songs.
Diverse in both activity and clientele, Lincoln Hall is a one-stop venue for a great night on the town.
Varies by performance, but can include hipsters, scenesters, metalheads, punks, preppy teens, fraternity types, easygoing music lovers, and subdued indie fans, late teens to early 30s.
Live concerts nightly. Varied acts from indie/alternative bands and acoustic artists to rock groups. Occasional other events like movie screenings. Several TVs tuned to sports or prime time programs. Mezzanine TVs showing a live feed of the concert.
Contemporary American menu featuring sliders, flatbreads, and southern-style sandwiches. Dinner reservations can be made via venue’s website. Some shows 18+. Limited street parking. Large pay lot at Children’s Hospital two blocks east on Fullerton.
Concert tickets $8–$25. Appetizers $4.50–$8.50, flatbreads $8–$11, entrées $8.50–$12. Beer $3.50–$10, wine $7–$9, cocktails $5.50–$12.50. Coat check $2.
Anything goes: skinny jeans, flannel, baggy punk gear, polos, khakis, summer dresses, flip-flops.
Any night there’s a band of interest playing.
Delilah's (2771 North Lincoln Avenue) for DJs spinning punk, rock, and reggae.
