Our family of four visited and had a great time. Food was good all around and reasonably priced for this type of venue. We even shared a dessert. The ambience and decor is "voodoo cool" with loads of decorations and paint. We were there early to see the Windy City Duo (trio on this night). They were fantastic with traditional... More

My wife and I came here for the Sunday gospel brunch. A great experience with great food. And the place is so cool. I just wish there was a blues show for my taste one evening, but being in Chicago for 2 nights only, we were unlucky. I will definitely go back there next time!

The restaurant offers great music while the food is averge. If you are there for dinner then you will be seated in perhaps the prime center area or on the sides. If you are there for drinks, then the bar is your area to hang out. If you must go to the restroom, expect an attendant there to hand you... More

Bar and art are real works of art, much of which incorporates three dimensional design with beer bottle caps. The art is everywhere and creates real atmosphere as s back drop for great live music. The Rev Ups, revved up accompanied by a great sax player for bluesy cross-over music. People appeared to enjoy their food, cocktails seem to be... More

Attended a private event at House of Blues in Chicago and I thought it was pretty neat. The food we had pre-ordered was labeled with old vinyl records I thought that was a neat touch and very creative. The food was hot and tasty and I loved the loaded tots bar!! The music was a really great touch. When we... More

House of blues in Chicago is situated in Downtown area and is one of the most happening place for music lovers. It has 4 flours and is worth going to this place. Before you book table one needs to see the timings of live band show. All sort of cocktail as per your demand you will find here.
