Heya !

Chicago, the home of jazz and blues, the heart of comedy and the idea behind a skyscraper. Being a hub of many entertaining activities, Chicago has always found favor with many people who like to visit time and again.

Since, you are interested in hanging out with friends, I have listed some of the best places where you can drink..

1. Club Foot (Recommended)

Price Range: $

Club Foot is a neighbourhood dive bar located in Ukrainian Village, where you can get cheap drinks. The best nights are on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. The DJ here spins punk and rock music mostly from the 70's and 80's.

Read what the club goers have to say:

Its a dive but its my kind of dive. It might be 2012 but clearly the bartenders haven't left 1996 and I love it! They have a pretty decent beer selection, the bathroom is as good as can be expected with plenty of pictures on the wall to look at. Patrons are nice, the music is good and TETRIS MACHINE!

Here's a review:

This place is the absolute real deal. It is exactly what you expect and want a jazz club to be. Affordable cover ($12), killer band (Quintet), great drinks and a true Chicago character that owns and runs the joint. He likes it quiet when the band plays and the place was full of respectful listeners. The decor is right out of the 40's and 50's and if you want to go where locals go for real Jazz in Chicago, this is the place. Make the effort, you won't be dissapointed.
