Blue Chicago is a very little place, pretty dark and old. For ten dollars you are going to experience real spirit of blues.
My second time, first was on 2013, same feelings, same impressive ambient. A must, in my oppinion.
We absolutely loved our night here! The band was incredible and even though the place is crowded and smells musty, it has great character! We got there just after 8:00pm and got a good seat, any time after that and you’d struggle to get a...More
Had a great time at Blue Chicago! Our only mistake was waiting for the last night of our trip to go here. Loved the atmosphere, the generous drinks and most importantly...the music. Shout out to the bar staff...no armatures here!

I agree with Traveler_Monster about circulation, we got there a few minutes after 8, got seated right away and stayed about 3 hours, drinking and dancing. People do come and go and the place is so small there's no bad seats. Like anywhere, the day of the week makes a difference. A guarantee would require an early arrival.
