    LOVE this place, the dual stages with rotating artist is brilliant. GREAT artist / music here, and cold beer. Be sure to stroll to the back for lip licking ribs, fired catfish, delicious soul food 😄

    Rude doormen, and musicians who are mostly interested in asserting their political views upon the captive audience.

    They have two stages between which the music groups/acts alternate. Well set up for all-night continuous blues! Amazing experience!

    Self-described as the "Chicago Blues Emporium," Kingston Mines began as a coffeehouse featuring more plays than blues, but quickly adopted an all Chicago-style blues format as popularity of genre grew

    Not to be confused with the tiny, downstate Illinois mining town of the same name, Kingston Mines is one of Chicago's oldest, largest & most infamous blues joints.

    Rude bouncers at the door and overpriced cover charges, just to pay for overpriced drinks inside and listen to caustic political swill with some blues thrown in.
