Roscoe Village’s Beat Kitchen is deceptive from the exterior, looking more like a small neighborhood tavern. Once inside, its volume won’t blow you away, but a decently sized front restaurant and bar offer a comfortable place to relax before or during a show. If you’re going to see a touring band, the back room won’t disappoint despite its small capacity; the sound is good and the beer selection is above average.
The food menu isn’t revolutionary—appetizers, salads, sandwiches, tacos, and pizza—but with thin-crust specialty ’zas and the option to build your own, you have a few good options for cheese and sauce. Because of the back-room capacity, most touring bands with name recognition skip over Beat Kitchen, but you’ll still find a few gems coming through town to go with the local acts. You also can get your chuckle on every week with a standup showcase from Chicago Underground Comedy, featuring a rotating cast of local comics.
