40 YEARS OF METRO CHICAGO
Joe Shanahan began his journey in artistic propriety as a Columbia College graduate with a keen ear for the underground music shaking Chicago’s musical core, and in 1982, he opened Metro Chicago.
Metro Chicago has since been pioneering and hosting both unknown and internationally famous musical acts ever since and has become a beloved icon to not only Chicagoans, but global patrons who recognize its place in music, past and present.
We invite you to gather at GMan Tavern, Metro Chicago’s sister bar, for a special conversation with Joe Shanahan and special guests. Industry maven Jill Hopkins leads the discussion, and while stories about Metro will be shared, the conversation will focus on the importance of space and community for both the music and bar industries.
Proceeds from this event benefit the Chicago Brewseum, a non-profit that highlights the dynamic culture and innovative history of one of the world’s most vibrant industries. By using stories of the past and tales of the present, the Chicago Brewseum takes a deeper look into one of the oldest beverages and its power to build community and its importance as an ongoing cultural force.
