226 W Ontario St - Entrance in Alley, Chicago, IL | Directions 6061041.873765 -87.658165
I went there year ago. This Saturday I went for my bachelor party. The music is okay, it's expensive like everywhere else down town. The thing that makes this place sucks is lack of cool people. A few of us (guys) went there to have simple, polite, and fun night. The was maybe 1 or 2 women who would dace with you. Either they walked away or boyfriends would take them away. It seems there is no fun laid back girls in there. Stay away.

FREE DRINKS!!! – Goshva & IO @ SOUNDBAR —Say Bill Cosby at the door and its FREE ENTRY, FREE DRINKS BEFORE 11.30!!! COME OUT have a drink and check it out.
Worst Club ever!!! Avoid at ALL costs! – They require you to check your coat, leave an ID and debit card when you start a tab. They kick people out for NO reason, bouncers are RUDE! I used to like coming to this place until a couple of my friends got kicked out very recently, who were harmless. I think the bouncer got jealous of my friend macking it to some girls. They didn't return the ID, debit card or a $300 jacket! DO NOT GO HERE!!!!
Top Chicago Nightclub – This place is a classic! Nice and big with dance music upstairs, hip-hop downstairs, and a mix of lounge-type music in the VIP section.
So so place – They do send a lot of spam out, that's for a fact. Place is rather big, but the entrance is through a disgusting alley. Nothing exciting inside either
Spam text messages = lame – So somehow this fine establishment obtained my cell phone number and has been bombarding me with text messages, letting me know on a daily basis about drink specials and DJ's and all sorts of cr@p I could care less about because: 1) I've never been to Sound Barf; 2) I'm not a club kind of person; and 3) I'll never patronize a business that sends me SPAM in any form. They are careful never to send the text messages from the same phone number. If anyone has email addresses for the owners, please share....I would love to send some SPAM of my own.
Bad promoter, Bad Music – Not a good experience on 08/14/09.. I have been party VIP style all over Chi-town the last 10 yrs.. this is certainly the worst,...doormen have no clue on service neither does the promoter guy named terell or something. I drive my bentley or ferrari there and they are all over me, then i take a taxi they start having atitude!...music now BAD!! NOT GOING BACK AGAIN..Don't waste your time and money
Oh yeah, did I mention that they were discrimintory towards balck people?( black people cant come in with a t-shirt and gym shoes but white people can!).. I saw it happen yesterday!! (Just wrote a letter to consumer complaints, rainbow coalition and the mayor's office)
One word = TERRIBLE
Da Place To Be – I've gone to Soundbar several times. Its most def the place to be on a Saturday night. I think the only let down is the music should be a little louder. Other than that great crowd and place!
Bad Night! – Sound Bar is like the place to be especially when you are downtown chicago. Out of the many clubs that are present, I have never seen poor accommodation and nonchalant behavior by employees and bouncers before. It was freezing outside, and we were left waiting for a minimum of an hour just so the line could attract more people and look like there were thousands in the club. Besides the poor hospitality, the venue is really nice and ecclectic. The music is great as well. The advice I will leave with you is to be cool is to be early. Get there at 9pm so you won't be looking crazy at midnight when you can't feel your fingers and toes, the price inflates from free to $30, and everyone leaves the line to go home.
