History

Double Door is a 21-and-up 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 The Dirtroom, which plays host mainly to comedy nights and acoustic shows. All shows are 21 and up. For more info on booking, room rentals, and live recording, please visit our Contact page.
