The place isn't much to look on the outside and perhaps may pass on going there for that reason. However,true blues fans are all about the music, not the glitz. The staff is friendly and fun. They have two stages and the music we heard was great. Everyday talented people makes the place authentic.

One of my favorite Chi-town blue clubs. We were able to take my 11 year old in to see it up close and he ate it up (and some cheese cake). Every time the guitar player rips!

We were so happy to find decent music during the middle of the week; but it turned out to be so much more than just "decent." Awesome blues from 8 till 3:30 a.m. with 2 bands and only one half-hour gap in the live music. Some of the best, most irresistible music we've ever experienced; and although we retired fairly...

This place was highly recommended and didn't let us down. 2 stages of continuous outstanding blues music, great bands and reasonable drinks. Service was so-so but I think with how busy it was it's expected. Don't go for a fancy dinner but the take out window in the back served great bbq ribs, pulled pork, jambalaya and shrimp and cheap.... More

Two stages with one side having a dance floor and the other side is Blues and suited for sitting and eating. Crowded but so much fun.

First time back since going there during a trip over New Year's 1993...and the place looked the exact same - fantastic! Got there around 10pm and the place was just about full and the band was going strong. Had an amazing time. Hope to go back again much sooner than waiting another 22yrs....

Didn't come for the food or the booze but ended up having a rip roaring night watching a rock band and a bluesman back to back on their two stage setup for about 4 hours. Right up there with The Green Mill although a far more grungy vibe.
