Underground Wonder Bar

Dear sweet home Chicago.
Home to many, for so long, is now being put to rest. The legacy of 27 plus years of live music 365 will be no more. Underground Wonder Bar will close it’s door after Feb 12th, 2017. So! You still have time to come home. I know that feels harsh and sad, but please – let us celebrate New Orleans style! Let us hang our hat with dignity and applause. Let us not go out whimpering, like a kicked dog.

Each day we must celebrate the gift that live music is.
Will be rise again? Yes, each and every one of us that has ever supported and graced the stage of the Underground Wonder Bar lives in your heart and memories. We are in your DNA–for music does live on, forever. In our hearts.
Will we have a brick and mortar again? Again, wonder never dies. But, no, there are no plans to relocate.
We Love you all immeasurably– forever.
