Where we've featured it
Empty Bottle is known as a West Town music venue, but you’ll feel like you’re at a dive bar that happens to have a stage for bands in the back. You’ll mainly get a heavy dose of punk rock, but on any given night you might catch some jazz, metal, or country music. The Empty Bottle has as much character as any place we’ve ever been, which comes from the random array of decorations like a photo of Ice Cube hanging over the door, broken-off police car doors, and a wall plastered with toy baby heads. Creepy? Yes. But we always feel compelled to try and steal one of those heads off the wall.
A block away from Sportman’s Club also in Ukrainian Village is The Empty Bottle, a spot for cheap drinks and up and coming bands. The Empty Bottle doesn’t look like much from the outside, because it’s not much at all, but if you’re looking for new artists it’s worth a hang.
