Kingston Mines is one of the oldest and best blues clubs in town. As you listen to the likes of Jimmy Johnson, Eddie C. Campbell and Billy Branch, you can also eat a variety of Southern-style food from the kitchen. And, if you cannot wait for the next band to start, you just have to cross rooms to the second stage where another band is sure to already be underway. By evening's end, the rowdy crowd sometimes has a hard time navigating from room to room, but that's all part of the down-to-earth atmosphere in a club that encourages its clientèle to be as loud and rambunctious as it pleases.... less

The house is simple but extremely cozy. So, if you wanna listen to the authentical american blues, have some fun, drink a good beer and tasting one of the best hamburger in town the right place to go is Kingston Mines.... less

    One of my favorite Chicago institutions, have been several times. Outstanding performers! Seminal blues. Minimal cover charge. Must see if in Chi town. Drinks are very reasonable. Go!!

The seating is great and designed tone flexible and enjoy the music. Service is really friendly and efficient despite it being a large venue. We also ordered some food which was pretty good (ribs) and reasonably priced. Most importantly the bands were great especially the main band at 10 pm.... less

They have two stages and usually have two acts that alternate, so there is always someone playing. They have a huge bar menu and the food is typical bar fare with a New Orleans and Cajun twist. Only complaint was that they have a senior cover price but we didn’t get it. We are 68 and 70 and they didn’t think we looked that old. I guess we should be complemented but we didn’t press the issue.... less

    2 big rooms to make you enjoy twice the ever lasting rythmic and dancing music from Chicago ....Basic but nice food if you feel like spending the whole evening ....!
