This place charges 10 dollar per person entree fee, but it's worth it. Great music and atmosphere. The down side is credit card payments starting at 20 dollars. Really? Not so tourist friendly in my opinion. The doorman could be a bit more friendly!

Fantastic tightly packed bar to listen to first-class blues into the wee hours. Crowd seemed more out of town than local in a Saturday night (don't know if that changes mid-week). Drinks were basic & plentiful. A great way to spend an evening

Popped into a blues bar downtown Chicago. The interior is rugged as should be, doors open at 8, music starts at 9. We enjoyed the pretty much authentic blues and the good atmosphere.

Great atmosphere, great music. Reasonable prices, good wait staff - get there at 8:00 or you may not get in!

We had a great time listening to some great Blues! Small location but I like that. They have some small high top tables for four on the left side of the stage that offer excellent views of the band and other patrons.

The band was great! But unfortunately the staff ruin the experience. The waitress walking around the bar was rude to anyone who spoke to her or asked for a drink, she kept rolling her eyes and sighing.. it was the first time in all of...More

I think there's on street parking but I've always taken a cab there.
Are reservations needed for groups? Can I get a discount on a group reservation?

I wouldn't have thought you can reserve spaces and a discount is unlikely too in my opinion.
