Greg Kot of the Tribune got the scoop here; hey, Matt Rucins, thanks for never calling me back!

Located in the site of the old Three Penny movie theater at 2424 N. Lincoln Ave.--ironically, within doors of where the late, great Lounge Ax was hounded out of business by neighbors who disliked having a rock club in the 'hood but have no problem with a dozen raucous sports and singles bars--the new Lincoln Hall is about three times as big as the under-200-capacity Schubas at Southport and Belmont, which means it will compete for bookings and audience with clubs the size of Double Door and the Empty Bottle. No opening date has been set.

What's the Empty Bottle's capacity? It seems smaller than Schuba's and definitely smaller than the Double Door.
