Naturally, when word got out that Schuba's owners, Chris and Mike Schuba, were opening a new joint, live music fiends couldn't wait to see the encore.
Well, the wait is over and the buzz has been tremendous. The newly-opened Lincoln Hall (2424 N Lincoln Ave.) offers many of the details that makes Schubas so popular -- an intimate atmosphere, stellar sound, quality bookings and a cordial staff.
The 8,400 square-foot venue has two levels, each offering full-service bars, clear sightlines and room for up to 500 patrons.
And don't fret if you have emotional (or perhaps gastro-economic) ties to Schubas' culinary counterpart, Harmony Grill because the Schuba brothers strongly believe in the blending of music and munchies. Lincoln Hall offers a full menu and a chic dining area that includes menu items like Buffalo Chicken Satay ($6) or a good ol' hamburger ($9), which is embellished with caramelized onions and served on a brioche bun.
Of course, we'll still continue to show Schubas plenty of love, but Lincoln Hall is a welcome addition to the family.
