Spotlight on Nightlife

The Law Office Pub & Music Hall

Downtown Yorkville is home to the region's most intimate concert venue with a curatorial approach to booking its weekly entertainment. Enjoy dining at nearby establishments like Crusade Burger Bar with their mouthwatering burgers and desserts of the week, festive Mexican fare at Casa Santiago, delicious barbecue smoked on-site at Southbank Original Barbecue, and killer wings and pub food at Rowdy's.

March Lineup Highlights at The Law Office: 

The Cerny Brothers

A group without gimmicks, the Cerny Brothers approach to songwriting is rooted in their banjo oriented folk beginnings and backed by a blistering, heartland rock n' roll sound.
 

Albert Cummings

Soulful and explosive, Albert Cummings' blues guitar is as ferocious as they come. Having once fronted Double Trouble, Cummings has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the Blues and has built a reputation for himself as one of the most exhilarating live acts in the scene today. 

 


Glass Ceiling Comedy presents Reena Calm

A favorite of the taste-making Chicago comedy scene, Reena Calm is a frequent guest on local media (WGN, WBEZ) and respected throughout the Midwest as one of the hardest working comedians around. Her headlining act pulls from a lifetime of silly, irresistibly irreverent stories that'll have you roaring with laughter.  

Seasaw

The duo of Eve Wilczewski and Meg Golz make bring their "We're Going On Tour" Tour to the Law Office on the strength of a quirky, earnest, and resonant indie-pop mixtape, 2016's "Too Much of a Good Thing". Wilczewski strums on everything from autoharp to guitar while Golz effortlessly holds the beat with a minimal kit and serious panache.
