The Old Bottom Lounge was originally located at Wilton and Belmont next to the Red Line Belmont stop. Forced to close in 2005 by the CTA to make way for a platform expansion, Bottom Lounge was reopened in 2008 in it’s current Lake St. location.


There is much more to this story of course, but we just launched this new site so, check back for all the dirt and drama that was the three year process of reopening Bottom Lounge against all odds.
