My absolute favorite small music venue. Wooden interior & stage, good beer, not an obnoxious crowd and great music each night.

Go for the shows or go for the bar - either way you're in for a fun night.

Schubas is this wonderful hybrid that Chicago needs: great food and drink with a separate live entertainment venue. This place rocks... no pun intended.

Great food, worst bartender ever! – On the bright side, Schubas books great bands and has terrific food (try the Mac n' Cheese or the Honey Chicken Brie sandwich) However, do NOT attempt to go on a Wednesday. My friend and I used to grab a drink every humpday at happy hour until we realized how unpleasant the bartender was. My friend's band plays there occasionally and she's even rude to the talent! Now we make an effort to get there later in the evening when they apparently change bartenders.

Don't Miss Brunch At Harmony!!! – The brunch at Harmony is to die for. Saturday and Sunday mornings. They use fresh, local ingredients and their recipes are creative and delicious. Great for summer with the open air dining!

Great "next big thing" music venue and bar in Lakeview. – You may not know some of the rock-influenced indie pop bands at Schubas, but a year from now they might be the next big thing. A lot of young Midwestern acts on low-budget tours take the stage during the week, but weekends belong to more established performers like Freedy Johnston, Robbie Fulks and John Wesley Harding. This corner neighborhood hangout buzzes with a casual crowd of alt-rock and folksy types. Since the club is divided into a main bar and a live entertainment area with a door separating the two, you're able to toggle between hanging with friends and dancing.

all in one and clean – Schubas is my favorite venue. We start with dinner at the Harmony Grill which has great food and throws in a free bottle of wine if you make reservations for a show. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere pleasant. The historic music room will hold about 200 and is well preserved and like everything else, very clean. We saw Julia Fordham, Allison Moorer and Carrie Newcomer there this past season and took our kids to a kids Halloween show, it is quite kid friendly and the clientele well behaved. The bar is our last stop(when alone) and it is well run and friendly.

Teeny Little Secret! – Schubas may be tiny in size but the bands it books are not. I've heard several great local bands there. It's also a comfortable place to chill with friends and throw back a few beers.

good music, bad food – cool atmosphere in the back of the joint. nice little stage room for local and nat'l acts who are on the verge of busting out.

the bar is nice but the food is pretty poor. overall, i'd say stick to the booze and tunes. by the way, great location on southport. plenty of things to do in the area.

small unique music venue – If you hear your favorite band (non-arena rock, I mean) is playing here-- GO! It's a great little place that books bands who have an extra night after playing at Caberet Metro sometimes. (Meaning bands you wouldn't often see in such a small setting.) When I went there (several years ago, yes) the bartender was Darcy from Smashing Pumpkins' twin sister (really). The bar downstairs is for chatting and the music is one floor up-- up the very tiny, spindly spiral staircase at the back. I was a little nervous about being trapped up there in and emergency, but really, that just adds to the excitement of seeing a show there.

Great place to see a show – teeny, tiny schubas is a great place to see acts before they get huge. pete yorn and david gray have both played shows here in the past year. it's a neat little space, comfortable, with a cool bar in the main room. good for folksy little shows.
