In fact, Chicago is such a food lovers’ paradise that diners face just one dilemma: How to choose from so many delicious options?

At legendary lounges, piano bars, and other great venues, the city pulses with the beat of countless live performances of jazz, mainstream and indie rock, folk and country, world music, and – of course—blues. After all, Chicago is the official home of the blues.
