    As close you can get to being in a '50s south-side blues bar. Prices are low, staff's fast & friendly, music's great, any bluesman who isn't working that night is there, & they often sit in. The best.

    In 1979, this small blues bar attracted Mississippi blues legends; today, it hosts Chicago favorites from 9:30 p.m. until late—and for cheap too. Read more

    I had possibly my best night in Chicago in this bar. Thoroughly enjoyable, amazing music, great staff, and packed to the gills.

    Friday night, entire front section, only area with seats by the band, roped off for a private party. Still charged $10.

    I went Saturday: Carlos Johnson, fantastic guitarist. Bill Dickens, Stevie Wonder's bassist, is in his band when Stevie's off. Astounding! Club gave me a pass to get back tonight. I'm gonna use it.

    This is a blues bar. You listen to the blues, you drink beer. That is all. Do not expect fancy drinks or personal space. Love it!

    Oh, yeah! Blues local y buenos precios. Los sábados se llena pero vale mucho la pena mezclarse entre "locals" y bailar

    Mieux en semaine qu'en WE. Moins touristique, mais moins vivant du coup... Moins d'ambiance
