    Excellent Jazz / Blues club. Deservedly popular and well worth a visit if you are visiting Chicago to enjoy the music scene. Convenient to the restaurants / other bars of Lincoln Park.

    The oldest blues club in Chicago, Kingston Mines also serves up some pretty decent barbecue. Blues bands are showcased seven nights a week, and the bar also has two stages. The crowd is a mix of music fans and DePaul students, since the latter get free admission with their student IDs. Kingston Mines is also open until 4 a.m., so things can get pretty rowdy after other area bars close.

    Opened in 1968, Kingston Mines is Chicago's oldest and most quintessential blues club. It's late-night hours and epic live performances draw crowds of all ages and offers listeners the choice between two bands on two different stages. You can find people boogying to the blues until all hours of the morning here seven days a week. With a student ID, you get in free Sunday through Thursday.

    This place is a wonderful venue! It gets pretty crowded on weekends, and there is a cover charge (discounted for students on weekends, FREE for students monday-thursday). Kingston Mines pulls in some impressive musical talent. The drinks are a bit spendy, but it's worth it!

    Doc Pelligrino named his blues joint after a town across the Illinois River from Pekin, IL, even though he's never been there. Great blues and BBQ.
