    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!

    Andy's Jazz Bar and Restaurant
    Great place to get some Jazz night or day. A good selection of Wine and Spirits in an atmosphere where anyone can fit in. Cover is usually 5 or 10 dollars, but I here they have live Jazz at lunch without a cover, but I know I would never want to leave, so be careful.

    The Green Mill: The Green Mill

    The Green Mill is one of famous gangster Al Capone's (check out his photo on the baby grand behind the bar) former speakeasies. Once across the threshold, you step into another era.The atmosphere makes you want to kick back with a few martinis and hear some cool jazz. Here you will have both. There's usually a cover depending on who's on stage but rarely over $5

    Dress Code: Casual

    Right next to my favorite restaurant, Shaw's. Live Jazz daily from Chicagoans and other Jazz greats. Usually crowded but very intimate. Great tunes. Cover is not too expensive, unless they have a well-known act.

    If you like jazz, this is the place to go in Chicago. It's open every evening with different jazz musicians. On weekends, it can get very crowded before midnight. There is a stage, candle-lit tables, and candle-lit booths where you can relax and listen to soothing jazz. After 1am, it's free admission and you can stay until 3 or 4am. I use to go there for the free jazz, but with age it's hard to stay awake!! On Sunday evenings, a poetry slam takes center stage from 7pm to 10pm. Get there early to get a good seat. PS -- Ask your waitress which table Al Capone sat at and why....There's always a secret passage behind the bar. I haven't got the guts to ask the bartender to let me have a peek. But Capone use to use it when he patroned the bar....

    Dress Code: Casual to dressy.
