This is a small venue which adds to the experience My wife and I went on a Monday night and the band was awesome. I will recommend this to all of my friends when they are in Chicago.

A small place with extra-ordinary live music. Not many tables, but if the band is hot then you want to sit anyway... It feels like a party at home. Cover charge was 12$, but drinks are reasonable.

This is a great wee venue. It's a proper pub, long and narrow, with the bar on one side as you enter, some seating opposite, and a small stage at the far end. I was lucky enough to see Miss Shirley Johnson do her stuff,...More

I agree with Traveler_Monster about circulation, we got there a few minutes after 8, got seated right away and stayed about 3 hours, drinking and dancing. People do come and go and the place is so small there's no bad... More

Don't know about Sundays, but there was a $10.00 entry fee (not a cover) when I was there last month.
