Jazz Institute of Chicago

Gallery Cabaret

The Gallery Cabaret has been operating in Chicago's Bucktown
neighborhood since 1990. According to owner, Ken Strandberg, the
Gallery Cabaret harkens back to a time when "you could walk into a
joint, buy a drink, and enjoy live entertainment like comedy or music
just for being there and being a patron." The Gallery has offered free
entertainment 7 nites per week since it opened. Over time, many up and
comers have graced the stage, like The Smashing Pumpkins, Urge Overkill, Material Issue and Liz Phair
(while they were still up and comers!). The Gallery has also hosted
numerous comedy acts and poetry readings and slams. Every month, local
artists have their work on display at the Gallery. Currently, we also
offer cable TV including your favorite sports, until prior to showtime,
and early bird drink specials from 5:00 pm until 9:00 pm. We also have
Darts and Golden Tee Golf. Can't wait for music to start? We have
TouchTunes internet jukebox with access to 1000's of song
