  • Capones man Machine Gun Jack McGurn spent a lot of time here. Now some of the best jazz musicians in the world play Green Mill. The bar touts a pic of Capone & a trapdoor leads to an escape tunnel.
  • Get to the Green Mill around 6:30pm and sit in the front. Judge the Uptown Poetry Slam!!!
  • I love the 20's era vibe and decor. I also love the old school cash registers, which explains why it's a cash-only spot. Added perk that Capone used to hang here.
  • During Prohibition, Al Capone had a favorite booth, which still seats patrons. Today the Uptown club books some of the best jazz artists in the world & the Green Mill hosts a poetry slam every Sunday.
  • Go for the music, not the drinks.
