    You have to experience Blues @Legends. Buddy tours all year - You can catch him w surprise guests in JAN. I enjoyed Jeff Beck playing w Buddy. This is a MUST experience. Get a seat near the stage!

    Although Central park north is smelling bad with dog pees, southern part of this park is amazing surrounded with all ranges of green and you will be able to watch skycrapers, biking, skiing, running

    The $10 entry for our 9pm show felt like a steal. We saw the Mike Wheeler Band, who were so great - I’d definitely recommend seeing them. Judging by the Cosmo I had, the cocktails are very strong!

    Low carb tip: there's a lot of fried food to avoid, but the chicken wings are fantastic! The Tabasco flavor had a great kick, plenty of sauce. Of course you're there for the music!

    Waiting for Buddy Guy to take the stage on opening night of his annual run of January shows at Legends. A luxury for any blues lover, but a MUST for any Chicago Blues lover.

    One of the best blues bars in Chicago! Buddy Guy does a concert series in January, but be prepared to get to the bar early for seats. I was surprise by the $3 312 draft special on a Friday night!

    Awesome place! You can tell it is a real and traditional blues place. Love the athmosphere there. The guys from the staff made me feel like home. If you are in Chicago, don't miss this place.

    My husband and I had never been to a blues bar. We stopped in for one last drink and ended up dancing until they closed! The staff was so welcoming!

    It's great seeing a blues legend and all that, but the place is super touristy and staff is super rude. No need to go back.

    Pretty good blues right downtown. If you want a real blues night, go to Kingston mines though. I'm sure buddy guys has it's good and bad nights. But it's a touristy bar.

    It's ok if you get a seat, but annoying if you have to stand. Doesn't matter if you buy tickets months in advance.
