Huge brewpub serving up good vibes.

Smylie Brothers has a lot to love, from the ample seating (including an outdoor patio) and small-batch brews to the smoked brisket and boozy popsicles. The pork belly poutine is not for the faint of heart (you can add an egg and bacon) but is recommended. Their combination of craft beer, cocktails, and wine—plus don't forget about those popsicles—earned Smylie a spot on the nightlife list.

Inviting live music venue with great acoustics.

Evanston’s best music venue is SPACE. It’s clear they really care about the music, and whether it be a local act or an international group that brings you to SPACE, each show is a top-quality experience. They don't cater to one specific audience or music and their schedule has something for everyone. The venue is also home to recording studios, where you just might be able to catch an intimate acoustic concert.
