Jazz clubs, Chicago
There are some really great jazz and blues bars in Chicago. Love Chicago! They have quite a tradition of great blues and jazz clubs, most any bar in Chicago has an outside option, but unless it's warm out they may not have the porch open. But most any of these bars are exquisite.
I hope you have a great time in Chicago, it's a gorgeous, friendly, excellent city

Chicago really is a music city, and of course it is the home of blues. This was one of my fave clubs If you like your nostalgic 70's and 80's music as well as a bit of jazz and blues thrown in this is a great place to head. Great bar and dance floor and a great bunch of people....
Dress Code: Smart/casual.
Don't know the names of the clubs we were in, but there is wonderful music all around. Ask about the jazz clubs and don't be afraid to go. Sometimes the cab drivers and door man at the hotel tried to discourage us (2 females) from going to certain places...but we were fine. And we loved the music!
