I met the owner of this place by chance at another great nearby place (The Blue Chicago) and he insisted I come over before I leave Chicago, which I did. I didn't regret it. The place is clean, the music is great, staff is friendly, bathroom is hygienic. The owner is a great guy and I definitely recommend the place... More

The band last weekend was a quintet, comprised of a very talented young man on Vibes; a quality piano man, who also plays good guitar; a stand up base man who kept a solid beat through total chaos of the two Cuban Drummers, who played Bongos and the big drums like Desi Arnaz. Both were world class percussionists who had... More

Seating, food, and service were great. The Chicago Orchestra Jazz group was phenomenal. We enjoyed the music and leisurely dinner. We had two teens interested in jazz and this was a wonderful place for them to experience the music.

A friend and I visited Andy's on a recommendation last year when were in Chicago. We weren't quite sure what to expect but luckily grabbed a table near the bar and spent several enjoyable hours listening to some amazing live jazz. The crowd is a complete mix of ages, the staff are friendly and look after you and although we... More

So you go to this Jazz club a few blocks from your hotel after the last night of Bluesfest in Chicago, immediately after Dr John closes with a typical night of bliss performance. You pop in, get insulted by doorman who tells you it's policy that you have to spend at least 20 bucks, or eat or some idiotic policy... More

I've visited this bar/club on nearly every visit to Chicago and I never fail to enjoy the experience! Jazz music for all tastes, good food for all tastes and a fantastic "feel good" atmosphere. I've visited during late afternoon, mid-evening and late at night - the place is always consistent and I look forward to returning on future visits to... More

Great spot to listen to jazz...very cool vibe and atmosphere-people really get into the music...decor is laid back too Staff are very attentive and take good care of you We had dinner which was good but portion size vs price versus value falls short, especially when you drop 150 for dinner and still paid a 15 dollar cover charge. Musicians... More

I can't think of a better combination than listening to a jazz band while dining. We celebrated our anniversary in Chicago and this night was the best! Our dinner was excellent and the music was entertaining and authentic. Andy's will definitely be one of our favorite clubs to revisit on future trips to Chicago.

We wanted to hear some great jazz music while we had a drink and a bite to eat, and this place delivered. We arrived just after the first set, which was perfect, as we were able to order our food and drinks, then settle in and enjoy the music. We had a great table near the front and didn't feel... More
