Made a point to see how Kingston Mines is holding up on our Chicago visit. It was great in the late 90's when I'd make the trek down from college in the days I had more time than money but already had a soft spot for great live music. Visited this time with our adult friends and although the interior and layout didn't seem to have changed much (although now without smoking obviously) but the bands were still great, the setup still works, and I still came away thankful we'd made a visit.

The food is still solid, not exceptional. The service is playfully aggressive, it's no Weiner's Circle but if you want to take it up to that level that's not too far away. Always enjoy watching the customer reactions to the give/take.

For a reliable, quality, Chicago music experience, give Kingston Mines a shot.

Great music, great ambiance.
Two stages that alternate with about a 90 minute set for each band.
Proper blues place.
We tried the food but it wasn’t great

What a great place! Bands were awsome, quality music! Food was ok, but you need to order directly at the kitchen. You can order drinks from your table.

The two bands/two stages/two rooms format is very nice! People shuffles, mixes and have fun. Plus, the two bands we found were great!

We went to Kingston Mines after a friends wedding and we had missed dinner at the wedding. Thank God for the food being sold in the back. The menu had a lot of great options. I highly recommend the breaded shrimp and fries. The loaded mac and cheese was not cheesy enough but still worth getting. Music was great and the atmosphere was awesome. Food being served until 330 am always good with me.
