How does ticketing work?

All tickets are will-call, which is to say that there are no physical tickets- your name will be on a list at the door. Online tickets sales stop at 5:00 PM day-of-show and any remaining tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door. You should receive an email confirmation of your ticket purchase. If you did not, you can contact confirm@schubas.com to confirm your ticket. Please bring valid photo ID for proof of age and ticket purchase.

Advance tickets guarantee entry to the show.

All tickets are general admission only unless noted otherwise and DO NOT guarantee seating.
For the best seats/position in the music room please arrive 30 minutes prior to show time to pick-up your tickets.
A non-refundable ticket service charge will be added to the purchase price of each ticket.

All Tickets purchased through this site are NON-TRANSFERABLE

All Tickets are NON-REFUNDABLE

Advance tickets are only available through our website (until 5 pm day of show) and outside ticket vendors when noted. Schubas does not have a physical box office. Walk-up ticket purchases are only available at Schubas beginning one half-hour before listed show time unless the show is sold out.

All Shows are 21 and over, unless otherwise noted.

What time does the show start?

The website lists showtime, not doors. Unless noted otherwise, doors open 30 minutes prior to showtime. Expect the first artist to start at showtime, give or take a few minutes.

What is your policy on transferring tickets?

Unfortunately, the only way you can make a ticket transfer is to have your friend or friends show up at the doors on the night of the show with your email confirmation and an original/physical state issued form of the ticket buyers ID. No photocopies of the forms of ID will be accepted. They must be the original copies. If these guidelines cannot be followed, no transfer will be allowed. Acceptable forms of ID include drivers license, state ID, or passport.

My band would like to play Schubas- how can we make that happen?

You must first send a sample of your music to demos@schubas.com. Please be patient in awaiting a response. Please check our Booking section for more info.

Does Schubas offer internships? How do I apply?

We offer unpaid (with perks!) internships in our music department and are more than happy to work with your institute of higher learning to provide college credit. Please email internships@schubas.com with internship inquiries.

I'm interested in joining the Schubas Street Team- how do I join? What does the Street Team do?

The Schubas Street Team is an elite group of dedicated individuals who help us publicize upcoming shows throughout Chicago in exchange for tickets, drinks, food, and more. To join their ranks, please email streetteam@schubas.com.

What is your photography / taping policy?

You are allowed to bring camera phones and handhelds, but professional cameras are not allowed without a photo pass. Our photography and taping policies are dictated by the policies of the bands playing the show in question, so this is subject to change.

What are the age restrictions for shows at Schubas?

Our shows are 21+ unless otherwise noted. We do have plenty of 18+ and All Ages shows, though. Our Family Series also offers fun for the whole family. If you are under the age limit and would like to attend a show, you must attend with a parent or legal guardian.

I'm Coming From Out of Town- Can You Recommend A Hotel?
