The Loop

House of Blues


329 N. Dearborn St.,
United States,

Once a historic movie theater, the two-story venue transformed itself in 1996 as an outlet for up-and-coming jazz, R&B, funk, and hip-hop musicians. If you hanker to hear local blues music, have dinner at the Back Porch and stay for the live 10 p.m. show. Higher-profile artists, such as the Indigo Girls and John Mayer, perform on the second floor’s Music Hall, which features some 9,000 folk art pieces.
