Wrigleyville Nightlife. Steps From The Wrigley Flats

The neighborhood is pretty tame by day, but come sunset the energy in the air is contagious!  It's impossible not to stop in to the local establishments to enjoy a drink and  great music with the masses of happy people!

One of two clubs in Chicago owned by the Schuba brothers, Mike and Chris; Schubas hosts cutting-edge talent in an upscale and intimate setting. Since its doors opened in 1989, it has helped break up-and-coming talent both indie and mainstream, and even played host to one of the first-ever Dave Matthews Bandshows.

Sluggers
3540 North Clark Street
DUELING PIANOS: Every Friday and Saturday Night and after EVERY Cubs home game. Batting cages. Sluggers has them, other bars don’t.
In a nutshell, this bi-level bar is the place to visit if you like competition. Sluggers is far from your typical bar scene, with a diverse offering of pastimes for you to take a swing at. While we can’t be certain, this is probably the only bar on planet Earth that has batting cages, trampoline basketball, AND a dueling piano bar within it. Plus, you can always check out the air hockey, Pop-A-Shot, or mini-bowling games. Skeeball, too.

Cubby Bear
Across from Wrigley Field
If you’re a Cubs fan (or a person living in Chicago that has a pair of ears) you’ve heard of the Cubby Bear. It’s one of the most well-known sports bars in Wrigleyville.. The venue is huge, with over 30,000 square feet of space featuring five projection screens and over 75 (yeah, 75) TVs. They also feature live music, pool, and some pretty darn good bar food. With its primetime location, amazing features, and massive size – we can’t help but choose The Cubby Bear as the best bar in Wrigleyville.

Underground Lounge
952 W Newport Ave
A Wrigleyville gem! The Underground seems more like the room in your apartment building where you would find the washing machines, but strangely, it works very well.  The variety of bands that play in the Underground rival that of more popular venues like the Empty Bottle, the Hideout, and Double Door.

METRO | SmartBar
3730 North Clark Street

When it comes to Chicago's live music venues, perhaps no room has been mythologised quite like Metro. Just north of the Chicago Cubs' Wrigley Field ballpark, Metro has seen countless musical legends grace its stage, from Bob Dylan to James Brown, Prince to Nirvana, and hosted the first live appearance of the Smashing Pumpkins as a four-piece, back in 1988. In 2012, the 1,150-capacity club marked its 30th anniversary with sets by Guided By Voices, Afghan Whigs, Bob Mould, and more. And the show that started it all, back in 1982? A new band from Georgia, called REM.
Underneath the Metro, meanwhile, is a darker and more beat-driven space, featuring cutting-edge electronic talent. Past visitors include Chicago house pioneer Frankie Knuckles, Paul Oakenfold, Trent Reznor, Richie Hawtin, the Front 242 DJs, and countless others, playing the finest in authentic house, disco, funk and more. Just don't try using a fake ID to get in: the 21+ club is merciless when it comes to phoney credentials.
