Sleeping Village Tree Rings


Sleeping Village is a bar, concert venue, and all day café. We open at 11am daily serving beer, cider, coffee, and tea. Our 350 capacity venue hosts an eclectic mix of concerts, comedy, and other events featuring local, national, and international talent. Our sister bar, The Whistler is a pioneer of the Chicago cocktail scene, but Sleeping Village is all about beer.


Our venue and bar are strictly 21+ ONLY and we require a valid, government-issued ID to enter.

We sell fee free tickets behind the bar daily from 11AM-6PM. If you’re looking to purchase tickets online we strongly advise you do so via sleep​ing​-vil​lage​.com and etix​.com only. We do not advise purchasing tickets from re-sellers, scalpers, or social sites (i.e. StubHub, Craigslist, private individuals, etc). These tickets are often overpriced and can be counterfeit or duplicate tickets that will not gain you entry to the show.
