A local's favorite
Why locals love it
I love this venue because people actually dance, the people watching is great, and it's a good place to catch up-incoming bands. Even AltJ has played here back in 2012. I would recommend checking your coat because it does get nice and hot on the dance floor!
Why you should visit it
When I go to the Empty Bottle I go as a wing-woman for my single friends and we dance the night away as we check out the handsome men. It's a great place to grab a beer with someone new. This venue has a very local vibe so come here if you want to dance with a local.
Keep an eye out for the WIndy City Soul Club nights at the Empty Bottle: http://windycitysoulclub.com/
Always a good dance party
