We visited Chars on a Friday night. Cover charge was $7. Upon arrival the place was pretty empty and we were comfortable. The band had not begun performing. Within two hours, our little table had people standing on all sides. It was ridiculous. The people...More

If you enjoy live music, a lively crowd and funky, small places, then you should go here if you're in town. We saw the regular Sat night act (Lady Jai) who was wonderful. We were about 10 feet from the band. There isn't really a...More

We go there often. Live band every night. Very crowded Friday and Saturday nights but lots of fun. Cover charge some nights. $3-6. Its where us grown folk go.

Attemded monday jam session. Some,phenomenal musical performances,with a few characters (always at jam sessions). But overall very entertaining. Neither expensive nor suspect. Live music every night It is where the best local musicians go.

Don't let the "Blues" name fool ya. It's really Motown and Soul. Best live music in town 7 nights a week. I prefer the weekdays cause it's not so crowded. Every single band that plays here are truly professional musicians and singers! This is the...More

Small, quaint bar. Comfortable atmosphere, small cover charge with great music. The band played a variety of types of music, all good. Hard to sit still. Each person in the band stood out but the drummer was phenomenal. I understand there are a number of...More

As what some may consider an old timer this place is Blues in Phoenix. Started enjoying Char's in my 20's and still enjoying it as I hit 60. One of the few original watering holes with great music.

As an East coast girl, I was expecting a typical snooty jazz and blues club with lots of tables and a traditional band where everyone would sit, listen and clap when they were supposed to. I was quite surprised to find out that the club...More

Going to Arizona when you live in Missouri and going to a "Blues Club" can be a big disappointment. For me Char's has the Blues was an overcrowded bar with live music. The music was ok but not worth the admission price. All I can...More
