The shiny new club in the old Three Penny space is so fresh it still has that “new-venue” smell. A somewhat upscale bar—with a fine beer selection, one might add—leads the way into a two-level mid-sized rock joint, a decent open space to swallow up the topnotch sound system as the balcony hawks rest at tables. From the brothers that own Schubas, Lincoln Hall looks to expand on the tradition its sibling venue has implemented. Last weekend, the Eccentric Soul Revue blitzed a nearly full house as swooners swooned and musical love was made.
