Andy's Jazz Club originally opened in 1951 to entertain the pressman from the city's burgeoning newspaper industry at that time. Today the jazz club features local performers that cover a range of styles from traditional and swing to bop, fusion, Latin and Afro-pop. For those who wish to dine at the full service restaurant with beef tenderloins and duck breast jambalaya on the menu, make reservations in advance unless you don't mind being seated at the bar. Doors open every night at 4pm and first band begins at 5pm. There is a cover (cash preferred) even if you're dining at the restaurant. The club is conveniently located within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile.
Best for Jazz & Blues Clubs Because: Conveniently located close to the Magnificent Mile, Andy's Jazz Club performances begin at 5pm nightly.
