smartbar is Chicago’s independent nightclub, celebrating 39 years of showcasing the vast and varied offerings of the dance music world, as well as the most cutting edge DJs from around the globe.
smartbar is open from 10pm until 4am on Fridays and Sundays; on Saturdays, we are open from 10pm until 5am. Tickets are available online at Etix.com and in-person at the Metro Store / box office just north of smartbar at 3730 N. Clark St, open Monday through Saturday 11-7pm and closed Sundays, unless there is a show in Metro.
smartbar is happy to accommodate patrons with special needs. Please email Chadd Kline with your name, special need, and date of the show you have purchased tickets to, as well as any questions you may have. Prior notice is preferable for your convenience and to ensure we have reserved a space for you in our special accessibility area. Last minute requests can only be accommodated by the manager on duty that evening as space permits.
Located just two blocks from Wrigley Field and steps away from public transportation, smartbar is the ideal venue for your next event. With the building’s stunning architecture and our friendly staff, your experience at smartbar will surely be unforgettable. Our 400-capacity nightclub is a perfect setting for corporate holiday parties or private cocktail receptions. While Metro, upstairs, can accommodate all age groups––from all ages to 18+ and 21+ events––smartbar rentals are exclusively 21+.
