Great Venues: Double Door – Chicago

Located in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park area, Double Door is one of the best places in town to see great live rock music in a comfortable, subterranean setting. It is the smaller, more intimate sister club to the Chicago’s legendary rock venue Metro, and offers an impressive range of performers ranging from mainstay rock acts to hip-hop, Latin, new-country, and electronic.

The club has a killer sound system and a layout similar to a rehearsal studio, making it ideal for bands and audiences alike. Over the years, Double Door has featured everything from up and coming local cover bands to established touring acts to superstars like the Rolling Stones. Double Door’s booking power is impressive for a club its size, and although it can get very crowded, the quality of the bands it attracts makes it well worth the squeeze. Guitar Shop TV’s Chicago correspondent Kate Anderson checks it out.
