Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune reports that Chris and Mike Schuba, owners of beloved local music club Schubas, are preparing to open a brand new, bigger venue called Lincoln Hall as a complement to the existing club.
The mid-sized venue is set to open in the fall at 2424 N. Lincoln Ave.
According to the article, "The new location, on the former site of the Three Penny movie house (built in 1913), will be about three times the size of Schubas, which has a capacity of 167. The Schubas brothers and their partners bought the 4,400-square-foot Lincoln Avenue property last September for $2.7 million, and have sunk hundreds of thousands of dollars into it to create a soundproofed, two-level concert space. A front room and bar will serve food. But the primary focus will be music."
