Very good time and dinner with a good friend and his son. Buddy Guy was in the bar, appears on the stage and got a very good night into an unforgettable night. Good place, good food, good music and legends alive around you.

During the few days of my visit to Chicago I've been there twice. Nice atmosphere, great music including a jam session (always on Mondays). And Buddy himself was on stage. Meals are alright. For me, a must in Chicago.

Awesome night listening to rockin' johnny Burkin and eating great food. Barmaid was excellent, very attentative despite the amount of people attending the venue. JOHNNY was brilliant. Also seeing Mary Lane as a guest singer made the night extra special.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of

Not sure, but if i’ll be you I would expect not to pay the extra $10. Ask them to clarify when get there. The truth is, if you’re a fan the extra $10 won’t make a difference :)
