If you love great jazz music with a romantic, laid back atmosphere, then this is the place to go! Located on South Clark, the street looks kinda sketch, but trust me- this is worth it. It was a smaller venue, with candles on each table. The serving staff was great, and they have a good variety of martinis and other cocktails to choose from. This is definitely not a touristy hotspot, which was great. The band was incredible, and the atmosphere was laid back and intimate. Truly a great little gem located in downtown Chicago. Try this place for some great music and an awesome musical experience!

If you are not from Chicago, and would like to listen to jazz up close and personal please visit CloseUp2 at 416 S. Clark. This almost hidden gem will not disappoint you! The staff is phenomenal, and the music is all you can hope for. CloseUp2 lives up to its billing of "smooth jazz club" - acts have included some of the finest saxophonists and keyboardists ever! Check it out!

We wanted to hear a little jazz while in Chicago, and a local resident recommended Close up 2, an easy block or so walk from the La Salle blue line stop. We went on a Wednesday, knowing that it was a slow night of the week, but didn't know that no music is played on Wednesdays and therefore, no cover charge. The place is also closed on Tuesdays - fyi. We walked in and felt a little out of place because 3/4s of the bar was filled by locals, but we still stayed for a drink (it was $5 martini night - $10-12 regular priced). Tom, the bartender, was so awesome - friendly, actually sat with us and recommended Mexican restaurants and ideas for our last day in Chicago. We met some of Tom's "regulars" and had a great time. Drinks are a little pricey (well drink $8), but for the company and experience you receive, it was well worth the price! I'd recommend this place to anyone, especially those staying in the Loop area.
