“Good music”
Review of Back Room

Back Room

Intimate, old school jazz joint.Gets very crowded and the tables are close together. Pricey but the music is - usually - excellent. Don't sit upstairs! The spiral staircase is narrow and steep. Table service can be very slow.

A small intimant gem with low ceilings, exposed brick walls and an occupancy of only 56 according to the sign on the wall. Despite the small size they had an 8 piece band squeezed onto their elevated stage. Amazing talent

I happened to walk into this place on a Thursday night because I heard some awesome music coming out of there. The female singer for band called Full Circle rocked the place. A definite must see while in Chicago some major talent there. Will definitely be back to that place for sure !! Loved it ..............Must mention no cover but had to buy drinks no biggie. Drinks were good and the bartender was friendly

I was there on a Thursday night and saw Avain Hightower with Full Circle. The female vocalist was the best I've heard anywhere. This lady can sing.. There wasn't a cover and we bought one drink was $12...pretty reasonable considering the talent. Seating was good. The only complaint is that I wish there was room to dance....because you will feel like dancing.

We, wife and myself, went there last night April 5th. Two hour set. Great music got the crowd going. Everyone was friendly, manager, waitress, and the band. two Johnny Blacks, two Martinis. The bill was $57.00. I thought it was a great value. Hard to believe the negativity.
