    The jazz at Andy's ranges from hard bop to fusion, traditional to swing, and even Latin jazz and Afro-pop. Andy's makes a perfect nightcap for an evening dining downtown. Read more

    They have rules. You should buy at least two drinks, you can't record videos and you can't be between the bar and the stage. But you have to go, it's an awesome historical jazz bar!

    One of best jazz clubs I have ever seen. Food is also great. Cocktails are also good. House wines are also tasty.

    Wonderful music, great service at dinner, good food. The only complaint is the chairs at the tables need an upgrade they are very uncomfortable. I would return again when in town.

    Great music and location...maître 'd staffed poorly...unskilled at helping guests adapt to environment...takes away from the amazing music...

    I'm a vegetarian so I just had drinks, but this dude next to me demolished a rack of ribs and I was drooling the whole time. So get the ribs if you're a carnivore.

    It’s a comfortable, intimate space; on top of the music, this River North restaurant boasts a respectable menu that tempts jazzheads to make an evening of it. Read more

    Showcases local talent playing everything from traditional to modern jazz. Andy's also features great cocktails and a casual dining menu. It's just a short walk from the hotel.

    Awesome venue for traditional music - however not a great place for food. So my advice is to eat elsewhere and just go for the music. Jazz always makes people feel cool somehow.

    Ardbeg’s smoky flavor has found many fans here in #Chicago. Perhaps because its smoky flavor is sort of like liquid jazz. Yeah man. Like us on FB:

    Great Jazz Music. Need to go early on busy nights to get a good seat. A lot of obstructions if sitting off to the sides.

    Amazing live music, food and drinks. It's a great experience tbh and well worth the cover charge (which is only $10 btw)

    An historic jazz club and a must-visit when in Chicago. Shockingly, the food is actually decent, and the drink pours are generous. (Ie, not a tourist trap.)

    Chicago jazz orchestra is by far the best act to see here. Don't waste your time on others. Managers are really bitchy and push people out door if they don't spend enough $

    One feels classy being here. Great service, though some drinks are pricey - to be expected at a jazz club though.

    По вечерам живые выступления джазовых артистов, однако попасть внутрь не так уж и просто, может не оказаться мест. Вход платны. В целом нормальное место для того, чтобы послушать джаз, но не есть/пить
