Empty Bottle Event Tickets
Rock n' roll venues work for years to achieve what the Empty Bottle has in a relatively short time. In 1992, the Empty Bottle started out as a cat-infested little known bar in Ukrainian Village (just south of Wicker Park) where patrons could enjoy one of nine beers for less than a dollar and a half, shoot pool for 50 cents, and find every obscure band known to man on the jukebox. Today, after a move to a slightly larger and better-equipped venue down the street, the Empty Bottle continues to offer it's no frills, laid back attitude and lively stage to the music lovers who descend on the venue nightly. A trip to Chicago is incomplete without a show at the Empty Bottle. While you're in the Windy City, be sure to score tickets to Wrigley Field tickets to see the legendary Cubs take the field!
