Amazing local talent and jam night for anyone on Wednesdays. $5 cover for an authentic Chicago blues experience.

I have been to this place so many times over the years I could not begin to count them. You never know who you might see but the acts on stage are always entertaining and worthwhile. Drinks are reasonably priced and the wait staff is attentive even when the place is S.R.O. which happens frequently.

I had not enough time in Chicago but wanted to have a blues bar experience. It is a must to do in Chicago, right? This place is one of them. It was just I was expecting. We paid 10$ per person at the entrance. It is a small, cozy bar with great blues music. I would go if I visit Chicago again.

Great service, awesome music. I just dont recommend going to the toilet there (sanitary conditions and no lock). But if you are in Chicago, going here is definetly a must! (Cover was 7 dollars pp)

If you are looking for a small, intimate venue with great blues - look no further.
Right across the street from Kingston Mines....another favorite. Checked it out during a recent trip to Chicago and loved the vib.
