“concert hall and nightclub”
Double Door is a concert hall and nightclub located at 1572 N. Milwaukee Avenue, in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood. The venue was first opened on June 12, 1994, and is co-owned by Andy Barrett, Sean Mulroney and Joe Shanahan. On June 12, 1994, under its current ownership, the Double Door hosted its first show, Lloyd Cole, the same week, the Smashing Pumpkins played under the name the Starchildren. The venue has a capacity of 473 people. It is two floors, has a stage, separate soundboards for both main and monitor speakers, a dance floor and a bar. Pool tables and a bar are located downstairs in the Dirtroom and the venue's first open mic took place there on September 8, 2009.
The Double Door is one of my favorite places in the city to see a show. The sound in this place is always fantastic, the bartenders are speedy, and they book some really great shows and produce them well.
Do yourself a favor and head upstairs after you grab your drinks, snag a spot on the balcony, and enjoy the best seat in the house.
