You need to pay $10 for entrance, the place is small but nice, long bar and tables. Music is very good and they engage the audience. I like it and I would like to visit again

Cover was $10.00 .Got there early at 9pm and got a good seat near the stand, looked up 30 minutes later it was standing room only. Waitress was... More

We visit this bar every time we come to Chicago. The music is great, the bands are a lot of fun, and the customers very friendly. Lots of dancing in this bar. Only draw back is the $12.00 door fee.

Visited this bar with a friend labour day Friday. Paid cover, got decent table (had to share bc we were only 2 - but that was fine) Demetria T rocked it! Her back up band sang a few numbers on their own and they were great also. Fun crowd - lots of dancing - including one wonderful brave older guy... More

Arrived around 8.45, and found a great seat at the bar. Cover Charge $10.00 mid week. The place was full by 9.30, and at full swing. Well worth it to get some true Blues in Chicago. Variety of the well known tunes and some home grown. Premises a little dated, but great atmosphere to visit a down to earth Blues... More

Visiting a blues bar is a Chicago must. I was advised to come here by a local. Loved the atmosphere and plenty of friendly people to speak to. Music was great. Would definitely return.

Went on a Friday and paid 12 bucks pp to get in. Got there around 8pm and was able to grab a table with seats on the left side of the dance floor. The show started at 9 and the place was standing room only at that point. Great musicians and singers - great blues. Good time. It's loud too!... More

We couldn't enjoy the music due to the uncomfortable atmosphere. People were admitted beyond the clubs capacity. We were constantly ushered out of the path of the waitresses but there was no other place to go. The drinks and cover were cheap but that doesn't matter if you can't sit down and enjoy the music. The music was good but... More
