It’s a bit of a hike to this Logan Square blues dive, but if you’re already in the area, stop in and see what a hipster-filled blues bar looks like. This hole-in-the-wall, which is not much more than a long, skinny room, has been here for more than 3 decades, and a photo on the wall of Barack Obama, who held fundraisers here before he was president, is a reminder of just how hip our Commander-in-Chief is to have discovered this out-of-the-way boozy blues spot. Shows usually start between 8 and 10pm Tuesday through Saturday; check website for exact times.
