Great local place

We went to Underground on an open jam night - the musicians were constantly changing and made the whole experience great. The music was fantastic, and always entertaining.

Wow! What a fantastic night!?! Live music that kept us moving until the early hours of the morning. One of Sven's favourites in Chicago and now one of Gwen's also :) Such a wonderful way to experience the city's live music scene.

The new one somehow...doesn't match to my preferences. I loved the reggae nights - sundays. Loonie Walker and her sons ar ea very creative people I like smoked jons and other talented Chicago blues men.

We visited this bar while on a 3 night break in Chicago. We intended to listen to the 8 - 10 pm music set but got chatting to some of the locals and, in particular Matthew the barman, and ended up leaving at 1.30 am. Fantastic evening of great music, beer and conversation. Would definitely recommend the Underground Wonder Bar... More

This was a nice place to go. We went on a Saturday night. There was a $10.00 cover which wasn't bad at all. The first thing you see after you walk in is the stage all the way in the back. In-between that are tables and a long bar area. There are also a few tables in the back by... More

This place has a variety of great music but be prepared for a cover charge. It's usually well worth it. The place is very very small and the music is loud- so don't go here expecting to have intimate conversation. The menu is typical bar food but the flatbread pizza was delicious.

I love live music and enjoyed my visit to the Underground on a Thursday night. Listened to live Brazilian band followed by the jammin' sounds of Jamaica! Great after hours place located in walking distance from the center of the Mag Mile. Drinks were ok, nothing special, but the music made up for it! Great after dinner and late night... More

The underground wonderbar is esoteric, in the sense that it's a little hard to understand what goes on here.. It's a neat place with an attitude of it's own... however, the music is hit or miss. Been there for Reggae nights which are great .. but been there on other nights when the music is really not very good at... More

If you want to experience Jazz, then this is a must see and do. My husband and I had so much fun here. The music is great and the atmosphere is even better. Doesn't matter when you go, this place is hopping until 4 am every night.

Went here to grab some late night food and drink close to our hotel. Food is mainly organic and freshly prepared. Very good stuff. Service was good. Music was awesome.

Staying in Gold Coast

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
