Every first Thursday of the month is a major Rockabilly night for local bands. The scenery is mixed with hardcore Rockers and hardcore Rockabilly cats. There are a lot of people from the swing dancing crowd, too. I love this place, really, I do. Oarking is right around the corner, but you'd better get there early for a table. But really, if you need a table during the Big C, you aren't doing it right! Dance all night, the guys love to dance and the girls are waiting for them to ask. Heh, sometimes, a girl might ask the guy to dance.

Pros: Drinks are mixed perfectly

Cons: Tables or seating

what's there to say about Martyr's ? sometimes the music lineup forces one to enter and then sometimes you have to ask yourself, WHO in the heck is that bald guy at the door who can't count money with two hands? the drinks are bad, the food is worse, but sometimes, just sometimes, the music, is amazing.
like the other night, The Cliks, in town again from Toronto. Who would have thought THEY, would come right into my neighborhood and play for me yet again ? The opener dude was scary and I have no idea how that guy got in, but Martyr's is legendary, and I hope it keeps great bands coming thru Chicago.

Martyrs' is a great place to see a live show plus they have awesome food. It is not your normal bar food, they have hummus, wraps, salads, pizza, as well as burgers! They also have an unbelievable brunch on sundays. The staff is friendly and the music always sounds great:)

I like how close the stage is. The sound system is good and the bartender is fast.

Editorial from

The Scene
On a lonely stretch of Lincoln Avenue, Martyrs' is cheap, has free parking and books some great music. The dark, nondescript bar remains intimate despite crowd size; sight lines are super throughout. For bigger acts,…
