The Empty Bottle in Ukrainian Village is one of Chicago's best best dive bars and performance venues. It has affordable beer and a charmingly grungy space. But don’t let it fool you, this bar has been graced with early performances from The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and The White Stripes. Plus you can also grab some great pizza from Pizza Friendly Pizza, which has a takeout window inside the venue.
