Hidden Rockford ‘Underground’ Event Space Might be the Coolest Spot in Town
You think you've seen everything downtown Rockford has to offer, but have you been to 'The Underground?'
Over the weekend my niece came to hang out with me for a few days. Friday during City Market we decided to do a ton of shopping down E. State Street.
If you've ever spent time with a 14-year old fashionista in training you know that's a LOT of time shopping!
There are so many great local shops in the downtown area, but we came across a spot I'd never heard of before.
There was a sign that said, 'Art Gallery Inside,' so we went in and down the stairs to discover 'The Underground.'
A man was there working on a painting and talked to my niece about how he makes a living painting different canvas paintings for special events and he invited us in to see the space.
I was floored, there was literally a secret little bar and event venue down there!
Not that I know everywhere in Rockford but I thought I knew most of the event spaces.
I was super impressed with the backs of the chairs, each painted with a Rockford scene.
Have you heard of this place before?
