Kingston Mines Reviews & Ratings
Ohhhhh what a night!!! Sunday night fun. Blues with a flair. Diverse band with beginners to experts. There is also young musicians in their teens practicing in-front if the crowd. Really nice to see mentors helping the new talent. Engaging and lively musicians that like to interact with the crowd. Drink prices are good and affordable. In Lincoln Park area. The Main guy that facilitated the evening is very colorful, he likes to engage with the crowd and makes funny “dirty” jokes to get people laughing. The crowd is mixed from young to older. Calm environment with a flair. Food is still being served at 11pm.
I loved the live music! It was neat that they had two different stages. Nice place to have a drink and listen to some good music. They had food as well but I didn't get a chance to try any. I'd love to visit this place again, next time I'm in Chicago.
Attended a concierge’s event many months ago, and this amazing place is awesome! The music is what attractive me and stayed until the end. Great food, too! Will bring my husband ;)
If you are looking for some Iconic, no filter, live Chicago Blues, stop looking and just come here. Between 2 stages, the featured bands absolutely rock their sets. Base, harmonica, keyboard, horn, guitar, drums, and singers galore. You never know what kind of song you will have next, as it could be a blues classic, or a 9 minute riff that feels like pure Chicago spirit. There are tables for groups to hang out and enjoy, while also providing plenty of space to dance and enjoy the styles of these great bands. There are 3 different bars, serving up classics and a few Chicago specials. Open until 4am, you can listen to blues until your heart's content. Come, grab a drink, and just enjoy.
Cover $15, good drinks $5. Great music as would be expected. It's pretty crowded on Saturdays but you'll find seating somewhere.
