Located in the upbeat River North district, The Comedy Bar first opened in 2011 and still sets the bar for stand-up in the city. The original concept, still intact with the same booking and operations leadership, was to create a quality stand-up comedy venue in the heart of the city, easily accessible to tourists and locals, and with affordable ticket prices and no drink minimums. Its first booking was a Comics to Watch showcase presented by Comedy Central and the New York Comedy Festival. The Comedy Bar has been featured as one of Chicago Magazine’s “Best Comedy Clubs in Chicago.”

Brewery Stage

The Brewery Stage (or B-Stage for short) is The Comedy Bar’s second venue, located on the first floor at 500 N LaSalle. It is an intimate, live entertainment venue with an elevated guest experience featuring fine craft beer, the same beloved Gino’s East food menu, and of course, live comedy shows.
