Golden Dagger is Chicago’s most artist-friendly music venue. Golden Dagger is your home for live music, hand-made cocktails, delicious coffee and a safe space for all members of our artist community.

Golden dagger patio: our patio is brand new to the property and is open during our business hours until 10PM.

Live music: we host live music seven nights a week. All performers and patrons must be 21 or Older.

For private events or concert bookings, please contact Donnie Biggins, at donnie@goldendagger.com


Golden Dagger has two steps onsite – One is 7″ tall at our entryway, and one is 10.5″ for artist-only entry onto our stage. We have a portable ramp onsite for accessible movement across these steps.

Golden Dagger is a general admission, standing-room-only venue, with reserved accessible seating available for patrons at house front left. Please notify staff onsite if you would like to be directed to reserved accessible seating upon entry. There is one accessible stall in the women’s restroom. 

Golden Dagger does not have reserved parking. There is a loading zone directly in front of the venue. If you are traveling, we recommend to use public transportation, rideshare, or park by the Chicago ParkMobile metered spots nearby on Halsted, Fullerton, and Lincoln Ave. All street parking is free after 11pm Mon-Sat and all day Sundays.
