B.L.U.E.S. on Halsted – Northside blues bar

7 days a week, 365 days a year, the B.L.U.E.S. Bar on Halsted’s neon sign is lit up, inviting patrons to come and enjoy something uniquely Chicago, the blues. Whether you are a blues music expert or a novice, a local to Chicago or just visiting, B.L.U.E.S. is a comfortable and relaxed environment to be able to saddle up to the bar for a drink and enjoy listening to some quality local artists.

Their unpretentious approach to managing this bar creates a uniquely authentic ambience of times past in Chicago. Through the divey-ness of their décor to the incredibly talented musicians that are featured here nightly, there is some serious old school charm roaring from this north-side neighborhood joint all week long.

If you are like me, you want an authentic no frills experience when listening to the blues, so just look for the big blue sign and you’ll find a cozy atmosphere with great music.
