Once a haunt of Al Capone's, this oldest jazz club in the U.S. opened in 1907, and retains the aura of the Prohibition-era speakeasies.

This place was great!! I have read reviews about the staff being rude, my experience was quite the opposite. The staff was friendly and even answered questions I had about the history of Green Mill. The Mike Jones trio was phenomenal!! I really enjoyed out...More

Went to the 10PM set on Friday 2 June. Really enjoyed the music, must admit staff was bitter and friendly is not a word I would associate with this former Al Capone hangout in North Chicago's Jazz hotspot. Ben Allison quartet was a class act....More

If you ever wanted to experience the kind of place Chicago gangsters hung out in, go to the Green Mill because it is relatively unchanged from when gangsters really did hang out here. On the edge of the safe part of town.

Cozy, old school feel. It's a prestigious cocktail lounge, but there wasn't a cocktail menu (standard or specialty). However, we still had a nice time and enjoyed the live jazz music. Make sure to bring cash (cash only lounge) and don't take pictures with the...More

Having formerly lived in this neighborhood nearly 20 years ago, I walked past this place on numerous occasions, but this is the first time I even stoped in. This place reminds me of an old smokey jazz club, with little changed from the Prohibition era....More

The reason it only gets three stars is because by the time that I got there it was so busy there was only standing room. We were looking for some place to eat, and this was not a good option on a Friday night around...More

While show content is fine for a 4 yr old, this is a bar and in IL they may be restricted from being there. I'd suggest you call the bar and ask.
