Although it’s true that ol’ Blue Eyes once sang, “Bet your bottom dollar you’ll lose the blues in Chicago,” the city remains one of the best in the world for finding the blues… music that is. Here it penetrates out of alley ways, bars and subways. With so many blues clubs and street performers to enjoy it can be hard to filter down which to visit on any given night. When in doubt, always pick Blue Chicago.
Seven days a week, Blue Chicago has live performances pulsating from within its bricked walls and dark room. There you’ll find up-and-comers amongst the most famous blues musicians to have ever sung a tune. Whether you’re there to sit in a dark corner, sip whiskey and sway back and forth, or get your butt on the dance floor and sweat (plenty of sets worthy of shaking your booty), Blue Chicago packs the house night after night. So just as Frank Sinatra advised, “you’ll lose the blues in Chicago,” it comes full circle. A night of blues music just may be the ultimate way to — lose them.
