We enjoyed the music here. The venue is nice with good seating and some Buddy items for sale. There are lots of alternatives in the city for blues and this is probably touristy, but hey - it's Buddy Guy!

Had a lovely evening the band was excellent and the lady singer was fantastic. Buddy Guy sang too but beware of his bad language.

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many

Don't know about ticket sales at Buddy Guy Legends Club. When I had gone to the club it was a last minute decision. I waited in line to get in.
