Your Guide to Apartments in Lincoln Park
There's nothing like a live performance to get a true music fan salivating. Make that an exceedingly rare bootleg set, and you can practically hear the collector's logging on to Ebay. Some of us, of course, have things like rent to worry about, so for all of the exclusive recording perks without any of the expense look no further than AliveOne, Chicago's first, best and only all live jukebox joint.
What exactly constitutes a live jukebox? How about a collection of literally thousands of songs from artists ranging from Frank Zappa to the Allman Brothers, some dating back to the Analog tape years of the 1960's and 70's. Music is ever-present at AliveOne, from the booming classics emitting from the speakers to the extensive collection of vintage vinyl jackets, live performance photographs and assorted memorabilia lining the walls.
Candles and dark velvet drapes set the right backstage mood, and while beer is the venue's specialty (featuring over sixteen brews on tap and $2 pints on Tuesdays) a fully stocked bar can be found in the outfit's back room area, which doubles as a DJ dance space on happening weekend nights. Specializing in all things rock-n-roll, AliveOne also varies its groove palate to include offerings from classic hip-hop, funk and soul, ensuring a fitting soundtrack for all.
