Buddy Guy, the guru of the electric guitar, is also the owner of this groovy club. Buddy Guy's Legends recreates the grungy feel of blues dives during the days when blues was just becoming popular. A favorite part of this bar is the hall of fame, a wall that has some of the greatest musical mementos in the city, like Grammy Awards of Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy as well as the greatest of all mementos, the collection of guitars belonging to BB King and John Lee Hooker. Therefore, this joint is much more than just a place to hang out and drink, it is a way of life, surrounded by the sweet sound of the blues and jazz. So if you're into music then this may just become your favorite watering hole!... less

One off the bucket list.... less

The food and drinks were above average and the blues music was amazing this is a must go to if you are in Chicago. Unfortunately Buddy was away so I could not pay my respects to this legend of blues music perhaps next time I am that way. Thanks Legends for a fantastic memory.... less

Monday nights is jammers night which sees local up and coming musicians sign up to play with the band playing that night. One by one they were picked to go up and join the band which was fantastic to see. After a fabulous bowl of gumbo was taken away with THE Buddy Guy sitting two down from me at the bar as we both watched the basketball on the TV! Buddy went up and joined the band and sang a tune. He was amazing. If you love the blues, look no further than here.... less
