Phenomenal sound system, good service and moody atmosphere draw crowds of music lovers to this Lincoln Park venue. – In Short
Once your eyes adjust to the cavernous darkness of this former burlesque house, you'll marvel at the tasteful brushed-aluminum balconies; booths toward the back provide more seating. With tea candles lit, the venue is transformed into a cozy, date-friendly cabaret. Moderately sized, the Park West sells only between 750 and 1,000 tickets--all general admission--per show. A small dance floor is left open for large crowds, but covered with tables on more intimate evenings (bookings are diverse).
Best venue, needs better acts – The Park West is Chicago's best concert venue, by far, but it just doesn't have the bands it had in the "old days," and that's a shame. In the 1980's, PW was the place to be, with the likes of U2 on their first US tour, Heads on their second tour, and all the British pub rockers and punk bands.
New booking agency might help. Who exactly books PW now? Jam?
One of the best mid-size venues in town – There is not a bad seat in this place and the sound is incredible.
