Since I have yet to experience this venue myself, the description below was excerpted from the venue's website. I will update this post to include my own experience, thoughts, likes and dislikes after I see my first show there tonight.
"Meet The Mid, located in Chicago‘s meatpacking district in the West Loop, it meets somewhere in the middle of the city between Chicago‘s downtown and the neighborhoods within the city; somewhere in the middle of a live music venue and an upscale nightclub. The Mid seems to be in tune with live music and nightlife to give music lovers the ultimate concert experience.

The 801-person venue is located at 306 N. Halsted. With the marquee contrasting against the industrial lay of the meatpacking district, The Mid has already earned its hipster seal of approval. Outside the doors of the club, the great views of the downtown skyline remind you of the wonderful city of Chicago. Inside The Mid, you will find three full service bars, ample room for dancing, cozy booths and table seating, and a secret VIP room equipped with its own bar and DJ booth. With the second floor balcony and seating, there is not a bad seat in the house, and the dual-floor bathrooms that are bigger than some apartments. Simple modern touches like exposed brick and dark wood floors make the place look rich yet relaxed. The stage is virtually a piece of art – the elevated stage boasts the electric-music below, and of course paired with a monster sound system separates The Mid from most. All of these elements keep with the venue’s direction to pave the way for music-centric clubs in Chicago.

The Mid is brought to you by the good people who brought you this summer‘s freshest new music festival, North Coast Music Fest, and are responsible for the big names at The Congress Theater and Soundbar, among other venues in the city. With big time artists already booked, such as JFK – one part MSTRKRFT, Steve Aoki, and Afrika Bambaataa, just to name a few, will have music lovers lining up. Weekly parties like Mayhem at the Mid on Fridays and Control Saturdays are already creating a buzz in the city."
