  • No-nonsense, 'hole in the wall', dive-y blues bar with decently priced beverages (note no food available). Arrived Saturday night around 11:30pm and caught about an hour set of the excellent Sheryl Youngblood Blues Band. Was standing around the bar for a bit but managed to find a seat near the stage for most of the set. Recommended!
  • Fantastic blues club in the River North area in Chicago. We had a blast watching BTS Express with the amazing Shirley Johnson on the intimate corner stage. Drinks only, but the service was excellent. The prices are cheap and these people work hard - don't forget to tip well!
