Went to see a touring electro DJ set, pre-ordered tickets which is ALWAYS recommended, as the venue is small and apparantly had sold old early. they had to turn away lots of fans at the door. The second floor features the stage and a decent sized but intimate floor. we went to the 3rd level to watch. the bar upstairs was never crowded and has great prices. only problem is that if you're there to WATCH the band, you need to get there early for good spots. only those surrounding the bannisters will be able to see. otherwise you're left to listening and congregating, or going downstairs. will definitely keep an eye on upcoming acts and come again. great place for a live show!

I saw one of the best concerts of my life upstairs at this Bucktown/Wicker Park club. That was probably thanks more to the bands than the venue, but the Subterranean is a cool joint, no question. It sports classy, mellow interior with lots of room. One minor complaint: If you're standing near the stairs after about 11:30, the bass from the dance club downstairs may distract you during quieter songs.

PROS: Some terrific shows, good atmosphere, cool decor
CONS: Some music cross-fading, little else that isn't annoying at any rock club

The first floor is all DJs and tables. Drink prices are average for the area, but damned if this isn't some of the best bar food in the area! The DJs I have seen there are almost always great, and the live music venue is quite nice as well. Generally good sound and sight-lines. Very eclectic range of acts play here.

In Short
This three-story club attracts an eclectic mix of 20-something, music-loving urbanites. Velvet couches and chairs, a small dance floor, and cocktail tables fill the downstairs space, which hosts DJs nightly. The upstairs…
