There are plenty of locations throughout the city to get good beer or cider. Plenty of places to grab a nice coffee. And live music? Chicago’s got live music in spades. But by the end of January, there will be a place to get it all at Sleeping Village.

Sleeping Village will have a wide focus, encompassing beer, cider, coffee, and live music. From the owners of the legendary spot, The Whistler, this new space will be cross-functional as a bar, a coffee shop, and a music venue. The new space is much larger than their previous space, at 8,000 square-feet total. The concert space can be both indoors and outdoors, with a maximum capacity of 300 people. The venue is expected to hold both ticketed and free shows.

Despite the owner’s well deserved reputation for their previous venture’s cocktails, the focus of this place is going to be on the beer and cider. They’re installing a system that will allow them to have a 56 tap rotation of beers and ciders from around the country and across the world.

And the spot isn’t only going to be open for shows. Sleeping Village is bringing “all-day” hours. That means they’re opening at 11 AM, Monday through Sunday (that’s all the days). Patrons can grab Dark Matter coffee and use their Wi-Fi to get some work done before the late night crowd heads in.

We’re looking forward to seeing exactly what bands they bring in and what’s going to hit that massive 56 beer and cider tap system.
