“If Jack White opened a bar, Cobra Lounge would be it.” – Chicago Centerstage
Four years ago, Sean McKeough opened the doors to the Cobra Lounge, bringing Chicago a rock club with style. He offered a wide range of quality libations and a killer kitchen at the ready, serving the best burgers in town, exceptional salads and other snacks. Founded on the belief that rock n’ roll needn’t be uncomfortable, Cobra Lounge features bars covered in automotive paint, comfy booths, cool artwork and a killer jukebox stoked with Motorhead, John Lee Hooker, MC5, Black Angels and The Sonics among many others.

About the Street Dogs: In 1998, McColgan left Dropkick Murphys to pursue a life-long dream of becoming a firefighter for the Boston Fire Department. In 2002, McColgan decided he could no longer stay away from music and formed Street Dogs. After numerous staff changes and several critically acclaimed albums, in 2008 Street Dogs signed to Hellcat Records and released “State of Grace”, heading out on Warped Tour as a main stage performer for the summer. Street Dogs played Riot Fest in 2009 as well as major US road work. Street Dogs are strong supporters of Oxfam America, a humanitarian organization fighting poverty and hunger.
