ENJOYING LINCOLN PARK
hicago’s music, art and theater scenes have been producing nationally-renowned talent for generations. In Lincoln Park, we have countless opportunities to see emerging or established talent at our many venues. Everyone knows that Chicago is home to the blues, and Lincoln Park has several famous venues for this style of music. That’s why you have to stop by Kingston Mines and B.L.U.E.S., which feature amazing blues musicians each night. If more modern and up-and-coming music is your style, check out the Park West and Lincoln Hall, where amazing sound and an intimate layout put you at arm’s reach to your favorite band or the next “big thing” on tour. On any given night in Lincoln Park, you’ll find as many as 10 stages full of theater productions ranging from the dramatic to over-the-top and hilarious.
