Named for its elbow shape, this former factory is now a popular Chicago music mainstay. All types of sounds stream from its stage, including rock, alternative, reggae, and ska. The upstairs bar is relaxed, with intimate cocktail tables, while the larger lower level holds a bigger bar and a dark, spacious performance area. The Elbo Room can host private events for 50 or more.
