NileGuide Expert tip:
Kingston Mines is open until 5 a.m., much later than the surrounding bars that close at 2. That doesn't mean that drunks pour in at 2, though- the cover charge keeps them out.
Chicago is the home of the blues, and Kingston Mines is the prime location on the North Side. First established in 1968 as a coffee shop, Kingston Mines is now located on busy Halsted with two stages, two bars, and two dance floors. Patrons can get down with some of the most established Chicago blues artists and fresh up-and-coming talent. Besides drinks, you can also indulge in a great menu of southern comfort food. Kingston Mines always makes for a memorable night out of great music and dancing!
