The Old Bottom Lounge was originally located at Wilton and Belmont next to the Red Line Belmont stop. Forced to close in 2005 by the CTA to make way for a platform expansion, Bottom Lounge was reopened in 2008 in it’s current Lake St. location.

Great place to see a show and watch blackhawks games! Also, try the black bean burger it's amazing!

Only tip you need to know is how amazing the back rooftop balcony is on a summer night. Best place to enjoy a cold beer IMO

This was the venue of the inaugural "Rock the Red" show, in 2010!

Great sound, but it can be LOUD. Bring earplugs.


Order a Schlitz and use the two quarters from your change to play pinball.
