Double Door

1572 North Milwaukee Avenue


Double Door is a live music venue located at 1572 N. Milwaukee Ave. at the Six Corners intersection of Milwaukee, Damen, and North Avenue in the heart of Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood. It’s been hosting live concerts, specializing in rock, metal, punk, hip-hop, funk, soul and many subgenres in between since June of 1994.

The 550-capacity room has hosted an eclectic, diverse and often famous variety of live music and entertainment. Ranging from a secret Rolling Stones concert in 1997, to Rise Against filling in for a last-minute cancellation in 2003, to Sonic Youth playing a Lollapalooza after party in 2006, Double Door’s stage has seen some of the best from up-and-coming local acts to international superstars. And sometimes, those local artists end up becoming the superstars.

Double Door has a main room, a hayloft-style balcony and a downstairs bar called Door No. 3, which plays host mainly to comedy nights, DJs, and acoustic shows.

This place is fun if you wanna rock out. So many good bands here every week. I also love the environment here. Its so cool with all the memorabillia on the walls. The Rolling Stones would actually come here after their shows in Chicago. They loved the place and the people so much they usually ended up playing late night secret shows here. It just gets really hot in this venue alot. Drink prices are average and parking isn't bad on the street either, if you work it into your schedule.

You will not find a better sounding room. It's so loud, yet your ears won't bleed. The business owners know what they're doing because there is a sense of family, no matter how big the crowd is! Sincerely, the best venue in Chicago to hear and see a live show. Looking forward to new adventures in Logan Square!

I hoping DD stays and doesn't move to Logan Square. It is a part of the Wicker Park character and culture. Some times need change others, just need to stay the same.
