Claiming the #4 spot in Rolling Stone’s list of The Best Big Rooms in America, Metro has played an integral part in Chicago’s music scene since 1982. Locals such as Smashing Pumkins and Liz Phair have graced the stage several times, and seminal acts such as Sleater-Kinney and Nirvana have also shredded here. The second-story balcony curves around the stage, offering fantastic views of concerts from up high—if you arrive early enough to snag a good spot.Recommended for:

Probably my favorite music venue in Chicago - great atmosphere and you always feel close to the stage no matter where you stand. You can find easy parking at nearby Wrigley Field, and there's a good late night Mexican place across the street too.

When I think of Chicago's music scene, this is the first venue that comes to mind. Many bands have played here before exploding into huge worldwide successes. But many big bands will come back to perform here even though they can pack a venue triple the size of Metro. It's not tiny but it's not huge either...I think it's a great size for up and coming bands.
