“Fabulous!”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We went to Kingston Mines on a Sunday night and had a great time. There are two stages, with a band playing on one stage and at the end of their set, the other band starts playing on the other side. Linsey Alexander played the main stage while Sharon Lewis was on the other. Both were great but Ms Lewis really rocked the place with her amazing voice. Loved every minute of our time there. Worth the cover and the ride from downtown.

“This place ROCKS !”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

If you like blues go here! It is out of the way from downtown but worth the cab ride. No need to dress up, very casual but the music is great, 2 stages, dancing & just a really fun atmosphere. My husband & I will be back!

“Best blues ever!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

Spent an evening at this club and will definitely return while in Chicago! There are two stages, each with great music! We saw W Williams and Carl Weathersby and they are both great artists!! Music starts at 9h30 and goes on until 4am! There is also plenty of space to dance! The drinks are good and not expensive! The waitresses and waiters are very friendly! Food is good too!

Don't forget those dancin' shoes! Two venues in one - and a good rib joint in back to boot. Large whiskey selection too.

“Blues experience!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

I came on a Sunday night at 6:30 with my 17 yo son. They let him in with a parent which was great. We ordered food which was not that good but it didn't matter. There was a blues jam Sunday 6-9:30. Great muisic! Very fun time for both of us expecially where we are not used to that kind of experience at home.
