With two overriding mantras, “New Music First,” and the words proudly printed on the our awning and T-shirts, “Music Friendly Dancing,” the Empty Bottle strives to bring the most exciting acts from around the world to our modest space while providing a familial home for some of the best music Chicago has to offer. The Empty Bottle is the dusty twinkle in our friends, fans and extended staff’s eye and we pride ourselves on keeping the same low prices, lack of attitude, dedicated regulars and uncompromisingly fantastic music that made the original bar such a success.
