Bartenders shake up martinis ($10–$12), pour bubbly champagne ($8 a glass), and craft both well ($8) and call ($9) drinks with the elixir of your choice. On Fridays, Saturdays, and other select nights, jazz artists take the stage to woo guests with velvety tunes. There is a $10 admission charge on nights when live music and special events take place.
Close Up 2 Jazz
Lively jazz tunes bounce off the brick walls, exposed rafters, and blue-tinged décor of Close Up 2 Jazz's South Loop location. Bartenders shake cocktail mixers in syncopation with smooth jazz that flows from a floor-level stage. Up-and-coming artists offer contemporary jazz in the loft-style lounge, whose music and ambiance have attracted numerous mentions in the press. Just steps from the LaSalle/Van Buren Brown Line stop, the chic club leaves its doors open from 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. on weekdays and 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Saturdays to catch the postwork crowd and recently retired "L" train cars.
