Great late night hangout. My group went downstairs where they were playing 80s music. We danced as much as we could since it was very crowded. The only complaint was an a-hole bartender that had a huge attitude. You can tell this was his "golden ticket". I'm pretty sure he was over charging me for drinks and was pocketing the difference. Then he actually complained to me when I asked for a cup of water along with my order! Since he acted like I was inconveniencing him, I wasn't going to tip him, but he stared me down until I did. Guy really pissed me off. I can't imagine a bar would be that desperate to have such a piece of crap working their on a busy Saturday night. I which I knew his name, but I would avoid him at all costs. He was working the bar downstairs near the bathrooms.

The Underground Wonder Bar was a highlight of our recent trip to Chicago. The jazz-blues fusion band was excellent, particularly the trombonist. I'm so glad that we were able to go there before it closed its doors permanently (Lonie, the singer and owner of the bar, announced that it would be closing on the Labour Day weekend, after being in business for 28 years).

This place is cozy, the crowd seems to know the artists at a very good location. There was a $5 cover and both the jazz and reggae was decent. Drinks were very good and we enjoyed the setting and the music. The lower level has electronic music and some people were headed there but for a Thu there was a pretty decent crowd. Heard that the place is either moving or closing as the lease is up and owner may have other plans. So go there soon!

Walked by this place a bunch of times and it always looked pretty hip and vibrant inside. Well, looks can be deceiving. The drinks and bar service were good. An honest drink for a decent price. I had an old fashioned - it was good, classic. My wife had a Manhattan, they put it on the rocks without asking, she likes hers up but no big deal it was solid. The food on the other hand - ugh! Ordered pizza - it was warm, at best, and tasted like it was microwaved and definitely over priced. Skip it! Music was OK. While we were there an older woman was singing what was her version of the Blues - someone said she was the owner - she should leave the singing to the pro's and maybe hire a good chef. Will not be back. Much better choices in River North - with no cover charge!
