Buddy Guy’s Legends, one of Chicago’s true cultural landmarks, gives every guest an authentic taste of Chicago and the Chicago blues. Chicago’s premier blues club, owned by Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Buddy Guy himself, has been booking some of the best local and national blues bands seven nights a week for 20 years. Buddy Guy’s Legends serves up a full menu specializing in authentic Cajun fare and the club is open for lunch Wednesday through Sunday where you can listen to live music while you dine from noon until 2:00PM. The walls of Legends are adorned with some items from Buddy’s personal collection, turning the club into a miniature blues museum. Voted Best Blues Club by CitySearch every year since 2005, you can even catch Buddy at the bar from time to time! Buddy Guy’s Legends is available to host small and large groups and events.
