On the rise in the Windy City

Chicago, it's a pleasure to be here. West Fulton's newest artist hub for casual and professional creatives is nearly ready to open — we can't wait for you to get started in the studios.

For now, let's take a look at some of our favorite local hangouts:

  • Smartbar is a legendary venue revered by the international dance music community. If you're making one stop-off on a night out, make sure you pay a visit.
  • For record collecting enthusiasts, Gramaphone stocks a wide selection of Chi-town classics and contemporary house/techno.
  • Evanston Space's outdoor events and livestreams play host to acoustic solo artists and group acts across the spectrum of indie, jazz, and soul.
  • There's no shortage of option in the world of theatre and the performing arts here, though nothing matches the Auditorium Theatre for scale and spectacle.
