Blues Bar's grill mavens sizzle up barbecued bites from a menu loaded with meaty entrees and over 70 craft beers as the sounds of live music fill the cozy eatery on Friday and Saturday nights. Warm up the chops by nibbling on cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and green onions warmly snuggled inside the quesadillas' flour tortillas before moving onto heftier spreads, such as a half-slab of Memphis-style baby back ribs, which comes slathered in zesty bourbon, sweet and sticky, apple-Guinness or a seasonal barbecue sauce. The burger's Angus-beef patty dons a sporty coat of blue cheese and green peppers inside a pretzel roll, ready to be washed down with a hoppy delight, such as the bitter Half Acre Over ale or the Czech-style Lagunitas Pils. Mixed drinks, including the Kentucky Derby, infused with Makers Mark and Apple Pucker, also work to keep patrons as cool as an Antarctic cucumber in a leather jacket.
Rhythm-and-blues devotees can nod approvingly as they revel in Blues Bar's weekend jams in the flesh or via one of the 10 LCD screens. Whether they're seated at a high-top table in the main dining area or at a standard sized table on the second floor, fans can garner decent views of the performers without needing to squint or use opera glasses attached to NASA telescopes
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.
