I strongly recommend Space. It has a great atmosphere and awesome live music. You can order food from the pizzeria next door. You feel like you are in a hip part of Chicago but you are actually on the North Shore.

Great "space" including a delightful restaurant with great pizzas, and a musical space that offers wonderful entertainment from popular to classical. There is something here for everybody.

We have been going to Space since it opened. They have a terrific lineup of great musicians from classical, jazz, country and more! Very intimate and comfortable space. And it is very affordable. We love that this is in our neighborhood!
