10BEST Says

Jazz & Blues Clubs: It's tiny, a bit dingy and crowded. In other words: the perfect place to see live blues. The walls are covered in history of blues and Chicago icons and small tables bring you up close and personal with others, one of whom might be a blues artist having a drink on his or her day off. The club features both obscure and well-known local artists (think Otis Clay and Magic Slim) but it focuses primarily on local talent. Testing your blues trivia here would really be a test because the slightly older crowd consists almost exclusively of aficionados. Shows are highly interactive and CDs of nightly and past performers are for sale.


Insider Tips

Local Expert Says:

Best for Jazz & Blues Clubs Because: It wouldn't be unusual if you find yourself seated next to a well-known blues artist in this tiny club.
