We were staying near buddy’s and thought we’d pop in for happy hour because the menu reminded us of the menus of Louisiana. Whilst in there the set up was perfect for a blues club, the happy hour prices were good, the food was tasty...More

Very spacious for a Blues club. Great happy hour with good food as well. Entertainment is excellent! The blues is as good as I’ve heard.

During the few days of my visit to Chicago I've been there twice. Nice atmosphere, great music including a jam session (always on Mondays). And Buddy himself was on stage. Meals are alright. For me, a must in Chicago.

Awesome night listening to rockin' johnny Burkin and eating great food. Barmaid was excellent, very attentative despite the amount of people attending the venue. JOHNNY was brilliant. Also seeing Mary Lane as a guest singer made the night extra special.

Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

Not sure, but if i’ll be you I would expect not to pay the extra $10. Ask them to clarify when get there. The truth is, if you’re a fan the extra $10 won’t make a difference :)
