96 West Main Street
West Dundee , IL
I have probably driven past this place a dozen times and never realized it was a music venue. It’s a restored vintage theater located right in the heart of downtown Dundee . I heard Age of The Fallen where in town playing a show & I had to check it out. You may remember them from our previous review. After paying a $6 cover I walked in to find a serious circle moshpit on the main floor. It was insane. This place is a great intimate venue with awesome lighting & acoustically dynamic sound system. I love the stage, it’s about 5 feet high and takes up most of the back wall. Because this was an all ages show only one of the bars was open & gated. You had to show an id & get a nifty green & white wrist band that said “Drinking Age Verified”. You could only drink in the barricaded area but it wasn’t so bad. There was plenty of seating & standing room available. Clearwater features a main stage and intimate listening areas: the pit/main floor, patio and private balcony. The bathrooms were clean with a good amount of stalls. The service was nice & the beers were reasonably priced. All in all I give this venue 2 thumbs up. I will absolutely be back to check out another show.
