I came to chicago by myself to replace my passport. I randomly googled "what to do late night in chicago" on a random Tuesday. It was such a fun, welcoming atmosphere that I didn't expect from Chicago. Bartender was awesome. I wish I could remember her name. She was great. Manny, the karaoke host, was literally on fire. I really appreciated the night I had there, and it made the rest of my trip so much better. Thanks y'all hit me up when you come to Nashville!

A fun speakeasy vibe bar in the loop! I came for the Tuesday trivia which was such a good time (won a bottle of vodka!) and had some great drinks! It is a pretty packed space and can get loud with the karaoke but still a good atmosphere. It’s definitely a fun little Chicago gem to see.

Stumbled upon this place while I was in town for a conference. We had so much fun! Got there at like 12:30 am because we came from a drag show at the conference so I wish we had more time. Karaoke was great, acoustics were pretty solid. Not busy at all on a Wednesday night but so so fun.

An old school speakeasy vibe and karaoke, yes please. Such a fun spot for a night out with friends. They run the song selection process through an app on your phone and our dj was willing to find songs on youtube if necessary, so there were no limits on song selection. Drinks are fairly priced and the food is decent.

We just went to the bar side of Brando's. It was nice and comfortable inside. The music playing was loud, but we were able to talk and still hear each other. It was happy hour, and the bartender took good care of us. A larger crowd started to appear closer to 7, but nothing unruly. The atmosphere is dark, but that fits the mood perfectly. We did order a small pizza since dinner was a little ways off. It was excellent. For just a sausage pizza, I thought the taste was great, and the crust was spot on. Don't let the choice of just pizza turn you off, this could've been a meal if we ordered a large, and enjoyed that too. Overall, we will definitely stop in again if we are in the area. Perfect spot to start a great date night or evening out.

Unleash your inner rockstar at Brando's Lincoln Park! Let the music guide your night and sing your heart out with friends. It's not just karaoke; it's an unforgettable experience! Brando's is a high-energy karaoke bar in Lincoln Park with amazing cocktails. It's the perfect space for a night out, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and birthdays! I highly recommend trying their seasonal pumpkin spice espresso martini!

I went last Friday with my girlfriend and two of our friends and this place is AMAZING. The drinks are strong, the bartenders and staff are incredibly friendly, and the karaoke is POPPIN. The woman running the karaoke can get any song you want up, it's free to sing (but tips are appreciated), and we got the party started with Holy Grail which got everyone out to the mic. Personally I think they're espresso martinis were killer, and that my rendition of The Anthem by Good Charlotte was the best song of the night. This place is going to be a staple of the neighborhood for a long time coming.

A very cool speakeasy! Was here from out of town and went on a Monday and Wednesday. No sign outside just a neon martini glass. No special knock needed though! Very nice atmosphere l, a little dark (as it should be) and a fun crowd. Karaoke every night, which is a blast! The bartender is super nice and makes an amazing Old Fashioned. Easy to make friends and a fun place to grab a drink and/or sing! Definitely recommend!
