    When you're in Chicago, Joe Segal’s world famous Jazz Showcase is a must, come and meet Joe and his son Wayne where you will enjoy fine live jazz and a great venue.

    Take the CTA Red line to Harrison stop and exit on Polk side. Was told taking smartphone videos of the musician(s) was "illegal." A glass of Malbec or Rioja goes for $9. Very comfortable seating.

    Great live jazz venue. I went there while on vacation and went on a Wednesday night which was free. Mark Colby was performing that night, the club has this dark alley mobster vibe which I loved :-)

    Since moving to swank new digs in 2008, the Showcase has easily reestablished its reputation for bringing in top-shelf talent like David Holland and Mose Allison. Read more

    At the Jazz Showcase you’ll not only enjoy historically fine music, but in a location that’s the second oldest jazz club in the country! Bring your kids (for free) to Sunday matinees at 4pm. Read more
