Metro is one of the city’s older and more famous clubs. Formerly known as the Cabaret Metro, it hosts a variety of midsize national touring acts of all genres, from rock to hip-hop to electronica. It’s also known for larger showcases of local bands, such as the annual Chicago Rocks fest, where you can catch a slew of the city’s top hip-hop artists all in one night. A number of its shows are all-ages or 18-and-older, so you’ll likely be frequenting it. Downstairs you’ll often find excellent DJs at the adjacent Smart Bar—see Clubs listings for more.
