Small enough for an intimate listening experience, Lincoln Hall never feels overcrowded even when the show is a sell out. It's just a great place to enjoy a diverse line up of bands. Fans love the solid acoustics and sight lines from both the main and upstairs levels. Drinks (which include a good draft list) are reasonably priced. The venue is near the Fullerton Red/Purple/Brown elevated train station. Local restaurants (some BYOB) make it easy to get a decent meal before you head to the show offering everything from Venezuelan and Mexican to Italian and Middle Eastern food. Tickets sell out quickly so be sure to order them online (all tickets are will call) before arriving so you're not disappointed. Since it's close to DePaul, the crowd tends to skew young.

- Live Music: "If standing for a couple hours to listen to live music has lost its charm, get to the venue early enough to grab a seat on the balcony."
- Best for Live Music Because: Intimate yet large enough to get a great live music experience, Lincoln Hall books a wide range of acts to appeal to several musical tastes.
- Early Entertainment: "Park at nearby Children's Memorial Hospital to avoid having to hunt down a legal parking spot."
- Best for Early Entertainment Because: While most live musical shows start at 10pm, there are plenty that begin as early as 7:30 and 8:00 pm throughout the month.
