About Golden Dagger

GOLDEN DAGGER is Chicago’s most artist-friendly music venue. Formerly known as Tonic Room, GOLDEN DAGGER plans to reopen their doors in April 2021. Now operating as a fully functioning coffee bar, GOLDEN DAGGER will be your home for drip coffee, live music, cocktails, a book club and a safe space for all members of our artist community.

Inside GOLDEN DAGGER you will find local Chicago artisan goods, vinyl records & tapes, cocktails & beer to-go and Cold Brew Growlers. You can order drinks to-go or to dine-in. We will offer limited seating inside the bar, strictly following the city of Chicago’s COVID Guidelines. With brand new bi-fold windows, we are excited to offer our services to the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

GOLDEN DAGGER will be the first outpost for Chicago based coffee company, SKYLIGHT COFFEE (www.skylightcoffeecompany.com). Skylight Coffee was created in the Spring of 2020 by our live sound engineer, Matt DeWine, and production manager, Billy Giannopolous.

GOLDEN DAGGER PATIO: Our patio is brand new to the property and will always be open for coffee service. We will temporarily be open for alcohol service beginning at 12PM everyday. The patio is available for Private Events for groups of 30 people or less. Please contact the owner, Donnie Biggins, at events@goldendagger.com

LIVE MUSIC: When will live music return? We are not sure yet. We are not rushing back to hosting indoor live music events until we feel it is safe to do so. We built this beautiful new stage for our musicians and plan to have live music 7 nights a week as soon as we are able to. We will be offering a brand new live stream concert series called LOCAL SUPPORT starting on Thursday April 15th, 2021.
