“If you're looking for blues, this place is the real thing!”

Lee's Unleaded Blues
Reviewed July 21, 2014

I'm a blues fan, and I've been to Chicago several times. I usually go to places like Kingston Mines or Buddy Guy's, but my wife and I decided to try something a little farther out. Are we glad we did. Lee's Unleaded is just so much more authentic. The music is FANTASTIC, the people are amazingly friendly (the doorman, the bar staff, and practically every person who walked by), and it doesn't feel like a tourist trap (which KM has become). Sure, it's a little more out of the way, but just hop in a taxi to get there, and call for one when you're leaving. If you're a fan of the blues, and blues music culture, you won't regret it.

One review says scary nieghborhood, but it is in a warehouse district and very safe. Don't stereotype the south side! Great warm club, makes you feel at home, patrons and owners friendly and a very intimate stage. I travel from Evanston to go here. Here is authentic blues from Chicago!

Very far South Chicago this place is a must do for live music aficionados. Best R&B guitar playing I have ever heard and superbly naughty vibe ! Pre arrange transport and dress down in this neighbourhood but if you're up for it you'll be talking about this place for ever !
