Chicago is also a music town. Stop into The Green Mill for cocktails and jazz and keep your fingers crossed that Patricia Barber is playing that night. Wow, what a voice. - Nikki

Congratulations, you've found one of Esquire's Best Bars in America. Great jazz and a superb martini. Order yours with vodka, extra dirty.

This jazz institution is legendary for three things: it was once a Capone hangout, its haunted, and the no-nonsense staff will shush you and the friends who dragged you in during jazz sets.
Time Out Chicago

This institution is legendary for three things: it was once a Capone hangout, its supposedly haunted, and the staff is known to shush you and the chatty friends who wandered in during live jazz sets.

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.

Great Jazz. Al Capone used to live here? Work here? Frequent here? They have a B3 organ that is amazing.
