GOLDEN DAGGER is Chicago’s most artist-friendly music venue. Formerly known as Tonic Room, GOLDEN DAGGER is now operating as a fully functioning coffee bar. GOLDEN DAGGER is your home for drip coffee, live music, cocktails and a safe space for all members of our artist community. With brand new bi-fold windows, we are excited to offer our services to the Lincoln Park neighborhood. We have WiFi – come work here during the daytime.

GOLDEN DAGGER will be the first retail location 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 and closing at 10PM everyday. The patio is available for Private Events for groups of 30 people or less. Please contact the owner, Donnie Biggins, at donnie@goldendagger.com

LIVE MUSIC: We are now hosting Live Music seven nights a week. In 2021, we will provide 100% of all ticket sales to the artists that perform on our stage. Tickets are available for purchase.
