Walked in, stumbled out! We found this place wondering around, bar was slow on a thursday night, no live music that night, had good convo with the bar keep. He said come back saturday, we did and there was only a rookie bartender but the live jazz made up for it. They are closing after the labour day weekend, go... More

My husband and I visited Chicago from Northern California in mid-May. The ambience was very nice, the bartender and drinks were great, and the Band was "Awesome"!!! I wish I could remember their name...I remember the guitarists' nickname was "Blade" as in Wesley Snipes lookalike...he played the "heck" out of that guitar. My next visit to Chicago will surely include... More

really nice time there, the music was great. it was a really small place but the atmosphere was very relaxed and welcoming. If you like smooth Jazz and R&B Soul then it's the place for you.

If you want to enjoy great live music this is the place to be. The band we saw were called Lake Effect and they did their thang. All... More

This place was amazing. Very small. Private area for a lot of friends. Very close to Hotel Blake. Our doorman Showtime walked us to the club. We were greeted and seated. The band was spectacular. Rina Risper

We love smooth jazz and had a groupon for this place so went one night after dinner. The live music didn't start til around 9pm and we got there early, so we sat at the bar and had some drinks. Bartender was great and drinks were great. We didn't think they were too pricey, average for a bar. Drinks had... More

We were given the recommendation to go here by the doorman at our hotel. While the music was nice, I felt a little cramped and the drinks - while good - were somewhat pricey at $12 for a martini. That may be normal for a big city but I didn't feel like the quality of the drink justified the price.
