Party In A Blues Club

Chicago is the World Capital of the Blues and with that title comes no shortage of great venues to host your next Chicago Blues Party. From the North Side to the West Side to the South Side there are plenty of great clubs and incredible bands....we can even go East and take the party out onto a private boat on Lake Michigan but lets take this one step at a time. These are some of the clubs we enjoy frequenting and would suggest for your next blues party.

The Clubs

Kingston Mines
2548 N. Halsted
Chicago, IL 60614

Kingston Mines is Chicago's Oldest and Largest Blues club and they feature more music every night of the week than any other club we have found in the world. This is no joke...everynight of the week you get two blues bands and a minimum of 6 (that's right...count them six) hour long sets on two stages in two rooms. On Thursday-Saturday they add an additional Acoustic set and open the doors at 7pm. They stay open until 4am and the bands play until at least 3:30am every night of the week. We have been booking parties at Kingston Mines for more than 7 years now and have found that when it comes to large events and groups visiting Chicago from out of town Kingston Mines is simply the place to be.

Besides the great Blues and unbeatable history that comes with serving up blues since 1968 Kingston Mines also provides the best in BBQ and Southern Style comfort food from Doc's Rib Joint located within the club. Over the years we have worked to develop several menus and party packages for corporate events and groups of 25 people or more.
