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

A straight shoot from SFO > ORD to Kingston Mines. Luggage in tow.Sweet home, Chicago(Did I also mention their home-style cooked tender baby back ribs, fresh cut sweet potato fries... and house sangria?) Kingston Mines is a real Chicago “food for the soul” Blues experience, in every sense.... less

The place was full and for good reason. There were about 10 acts (musicians, singers, harmonica players, etc.) two acts were so-so; the rest were incredible. We also visited on a Tuesday night and saw some good Chicago Blues. The drinks are reasonably priced and there is room for dancing if so inclined. Forget the well known places and pick this off the beaten path blues bar and have some fun.... less

Nothing I ordered was available: Mac and cheese, pretzels, cobbler, pecan pie. We didn't stick around. The $12 cover charge is ludicrous. It's free for cops, oldsters, military, half-price for students. Everyone except me.... less
