Blues music has always been the soundtrack for the downtrodden, except in the late ‘80s when B.B. King got rich and started raving about toasters with multiple settings and the capacity of his new freezer. Enjoy barbecue dishes with a side of heartbreaking harmonica with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth of ribs, beer, and more at Blues Bar, located in Mount Prospect. This Groupon is not valid with Blues Bar's daily specials.

Blues Bar serves barbecue bites and flavorful craft beers while hosting blues artists and other live musicians on Friday and Saturday nights. The menu bursts at the seams with hearty entrees, from smothered Angus-beef burger, served with blue cheese and green peppers on a pretzel roll ($10), to a half-slab of Memphis-style baby-back ribs ($13.50). Those tasting the barbecue salmon ($18) or pulled-pork platter ($11.50) can slather or lightly garnish their dish with zesty bourbon sauce, sweet & sticky barbecue, or a seasonal sauce option. Cleanse your esophagus of savory sauces with a libation from Blues’ extensive beer list. There's the bitter Half Acre Over Ale ($5) or the Czech-style Lagunitas Pils ($6). Otherwise, stay as cool as an Antarctic cucumber with a stiff martini, perhaps the Makers Mark–and-apple-pucker-infused Kentucky Derby ($10.50).

Rhythm-and-blues devotees will nod approvingly to Blues Bar's weekend jams, bands such as Chicago Rhythm & Blues Kings and Lil’ Ed and the Blues Imperials. With 10 LCD screens showing the performance or a sporting event, casual fans can peek at screens between bites, and diehards can get up-close looks without needing opera glasses attached to binoculars.

Blue's Bar

When paired with blues chords, the smell of barbecue sauce transcends the normal sensory experience. Housemade dry rubs and sauces sink into smoked brisket, turkey, pulled pork, baby back ribs as the meat smokes slowly over a mix of hickory and applewood chips. Blues Bar masters this ethereal combination of soulful sounds and soul food, coupling weekends of live music with saucy ribs and sides of honey-chipotle corn bread and homemade fries. Inside the lofted dining room, tables look down onto the bar and its 24 HDTV screens that play live sporting events. Also you can find well over 75 plus craft bottled beers and 20 continually rotated draft craft beers. The blues joint’s decor pays tongue-in-cheek tribute to Chicago icons the Blues Brothers with a larger-than-life mural of the smart-suited duo and a full-sized vintage squad car in which John Belushi’s hat was once arrested for armed robbery.
