I went to the Chicago Bar this evening for the first time to listen to "Hurricane" Carla Brownlee and her blues group. I have seen/heard them many time at the Gaslight Theatre. I love their music. The place is very different. I was there quite early (7:30 PM) and didn't know what to expect. It is, foremost, a local bar.... More

We went here during the Blues/Jazz week in Tucson and saw Hurricane Carla....what a fantastic night. The dance floor was great, the seats around the bar were perfect, this place was just laid out right. Great pinball machines! We loved the ambience and would return here again. Parking was easy as well. Fun, Fun, Fun.

This is THE place to drink, dance, play pool and relax. The music is live and it's loud. The bartenders are friendly and fun to hang out with.

This is a really great place! My wife and I love to hit dive bars and dance. This is THE place. Ronstadt Generations on Monday nights for "Americana" which is everything from gospel to polkas by way of Mexican folk music. They nail John the Revelator!
