Lonely Planet review

When the original location of this Bronzeville blues room closed in 2003, enthusiasts mourned – until it reopened in this bigger, better-sounding space in Hyde Park. Although it’s in a strip mall, the new location is more inviting for university kids, who often join locals for electric blues (Friday and Saturday) and jazz (Sunday and Monday). There’s a two-drink minimum in addition to the cover charge (usually $5 to $10).
