Blues Bar in Chicago
B.L.U.E.S. is not a big bar, but they play plenty of great blues (and have been voted best blues club on Chicago's North Side). Primarily local artists play in this comfortable, intimate setting. If you want a seat, push way in past the stage and you will end up sitting among the guest artists (who are even more friendly if you buy one of their CDs).
