Old School Chicago Blues
Calling itself "Chicago
's favorite juke joint," this south side lounge hearkens back to the days when blues clubs lined both sides of the street and patrons squeezed in wherever they could fit. The shadowy room boasts a rectangular bar and crimson carpeting. The regulars are mostly neighborhood locals and University of Chicago students who come to hear straight ahead live blues,with a kick. The vibe is laid back and welcoming; expect to be called "baby" by a waitress or bartender at least once.
