  • It’s awesome that this place existed to share the history of Chicago world known legends with generations to come!! I’m especially excited about the educational opportunities for youth of all ages including me at 50 plus.
  • Who would have known what to expect at the top of those stairs! This venue is a "Hidden Chicago Gem." The artist who preform there are beyond talented, they are gifted. Downstairs there is an area dictated to the Rolling Stones recording session from 1974 I believe. There are also dozens mask of famous musicians who have come "Come Through" Chess Records over the years. They've kept the building mostly the way it was back in the day, even the front door. You just can't imagine who booked recording time there many years ago before we knew their names. What a lost treasure! Great place to go alone but once the music begins, you won't be alone anymore. Bring some you care about and share the experience. It's the kind of music that you know in your mind and feel in your soul. Look around, even those with no rhythm are trying to keep beat. You can't sit still. Must attend the concerts when scheduled indoors or in the garden. Enjoy!
