About Smart Bar

In the Wrigleyville area of Chicago, beneath the esteemed Metro Cabaret is a nightclub called Smart Bar. This hipster destination blares all kinds of music from goth to techno to underground hip-hop. If you don’t like mainstream music, you’ll love it here. Concert attendees from Metro Cabaret are given free admission to Smart Bar where they can continue dancing all night long (if that’s the type of music being played). Everyone else can expect to pay between $10 to $15.

If you’re looking for a night of quality music, Smart Bar is the smart choice.

Smart Bar has been a Chicago establishment since 1982 and the no frills environment speaks to the fact that they’ve done it by bringing in great performances.

Just because it’s located in the basement doesn’t mean they don’t take their entertainment seriously. Their DJ booking has ranged from local favorites like Frankie Knuckles to international well-knowns like Omar-S. They also give attendees a great dance floor to utilize.

If your tastes are more to the alternative and you would like a place that will treat your ears right until 5 am, give Smart Bar a shot. If you’re seeing a show at Metro Cabaret, the free admission makes this spot a no brainer.
