Chicago & Jazz music are both historically enjoyable, put them together & you have the makings of a memorable evening. Plan on hitting up any of these great clubs…
Enriched with a lengthy life span dating back to the Prohibition Era, the jazz is showcased no better at any other venue than the Green Mill Lounge. In fact, its legacy dates back to 1907 and was a hangout for infamous mob boss Al Capone. Today, they display not only some of the best live jazz music in the city, but they also function as an excellent cocktail bar as well. Music usually begins around 9pm, so check out the atmosphere at 4802 N. Broadway Ave. soon.
In the 3rd largest city in the U.S… sometimes smaller & cheaper is better for exploring live music venues, here is a list of our favorite little concert halls for you to discover….
The Empty Bottle is nestled in Bucktown on Western Ave. & Thomas St. This place embodies the essence of a comfortable divey bar with a great sound quality, cheap drinks, and uncommonly friendly staff & service. The pool table, an old couch, some vintage arcade machines, whiskey specials, bathroom graffiti, and solid bands are huge pluses. In addition, Bite Cafe is part of the Bottle and serves up some unique yet savory munching options.
