I spend the summers in Chicago and live approximately 12 miles out of the city. I use the Metro weekly. Weekend passes are $7 for as many trips as you need all weekend long. You may BYOB and drink cocktails while on the train. You may not drink from open containers on the street though so beware. Use a coffee... More

The Metro is conveniently close to the L-Train, just near Wrigley Field. As a concert hall its adequate. Not comfortable, but cool. Great music selection and after show store. Reasonable priced beer and drinks. Concert was more late than fashionable, but closeness to the stage is a visitor's choice. Good place.

1100 of our closest friends saw Glen Hansard in this Lalapalooza pre-show. Great sound, lighting, and standing on the upstairs rail with an incredible artist and his band made for a perfect night. Park on street early or there is a private pay lot for $20 right across the street.

Aimee Mann and Ted Leo performed an amazing show! The writing and music was full of energy and engagement!

This place is old. The acoustics do kind of suck. But it's the Metro! The history here is indescribable! It's a cool, old art deco venue that has been my stomping grounds for years. I still love going there, even if I am now older and more responsible. If you haven't been to the Metro, you haven't really experienced Chicago!!

I saw Flying Lotus in May of last year at the Metro. The architecture of the exterior of the building harkens back to the late 20s, and literally sings class. It's a spectacular venue for music, with great acoustics, friendly staff and a choice location -- it's right near Wrigley, so I used my iphone's park whiz app to book... More

Clean, cheap! Old trains, nice stations. A great way to go from the city to Wrigley field - either tour or game. The train lets off right next to the stadium.

We saw Glen Hansard here, he was fabulous and brought down the house. It is great to research ahead of time or simply hear all of the great bands that have played here. It makes you wish you could have seen them all at this special place. The only negative is you have to stand, sound quality was better than... More

I saw the Shout Out Louds and Haerts at the Metro recently and was NOT disappointed. This is the perfect venue to see a performance in an intimate setting but with few sacrifices for sound quality or amenities. No matter where you stand on the lower level you are close enough to make eye contact with the performers and the... More

Proximity to Wrigleyville is great. Acoustics are HORRIBLE. But that's ok. You're probably not seeing a symphony here anyways.
