    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

Service lovely and enjoyed the relaxed vibe. The young man playing, who told stories of his life, was fascinating and had a voice like treacle. I could have listened to him all night. He only plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays so recommend if you are there, pop in for a listen.... less

I arrived early and was eating , drinking and waiting (there’s too much waiting there). Then I had the unfortunate moment with one of the owners who wanted to put new clients in the table. It happens ina a chaotic method of putting people in all seats ahead of you, even if you arrived earlier. Expect some rudeness in this process. The musicians where fair and the blues is regular. Everytime they have to cheer up the audience with bad cliches because with music they can’t. This bar should not be a first pick. There are many others better that are cheaper and have a better line up... less

I was able to meet him, shake his hand and share a few words with him. I have been a huge fan for years and this just absolutely made my day. The staff were outstanding, and Buddy's son, who was at the door, was a gentleman. I was over excited, and everyone just treated us great. Can't say good things about this place. The music was amazing, and so were the staff. Thanks so much guys.... less

      First time at a real blues joint. Incredible blues and experience. Loved the vibe of the room and of course the music. Unpretentious.
