Never got in to listen to the music. hostess and doorman were extremely rude. Plenty of other jazz and blues venues in the area to spend my money. manager tried to be accommodating however the situation was beyond repair.




My wife and I went here for our Anniversary and we truly enjoyed ourselves. Great food, friendly staff and wonderful music. No bad seat in the house. Will definitely be back.

Cool place

To ""colum"" you must be mistaken about the smoking, and the website not letting you know about the cover charge. Your story sounds made up and I hope no one takes what you wrote to be true. Get a life.

How LUCK Chicago is!!

You have no idea how Lucky you are to have a Jazz bar like Andy's. Back in the 90's we would go there & enjoyed the JAZZ. Joe was the doorman then. We moved to Houston, Texas & we just don't have such a fine place like Andy's. If you want good Seafood go next door & then come to Andy's for munchies, drinks & the BEST JAZZ! When we head North we make sure to stop by there. IT IS A MUST!!!
LUCKY, LUCKY, people of Chicago!!!

Great atmosphere, jazz!

As a devoted customer at Andy's I had to reply to a comment left by ""colum."" I too have been going to Andy's for years, and have enjoyed myself everytime. As far as the hostess ""exhaling from her cigarette"" I think you must be confused, because since January 1 of this year, no one can smoke in restaurants in the state of Illinois, so that must have just been a fabrication to add drama to your story. Yes, there are cover charges to come in.... how do you think the band gets paid? Anyways, I have always found the service to be good, and the staff enjoyable. There is an excellent variety of food options to choose from, a large drink menu, and the atmosphere is always lively and entertaining. Most of all, it has excellent musicians and groups who come to play. Andy's Jazz Club is still an excellent place to go!

I'm sorry to burst the bubble, but Andy's Jazz Club is now officially off the list.

I've been a regular at Andy's Jazz Club since I was just out of high school. I regularly go to Andy's during the week for a good jazz session and a great wine list. In recent years, however, Andy's has been losing its charm. What's worse is, of the last few visits, each one was a bit worse than the previous. I'm sorry to burst the bubble, but Andy's Jazz Club is now officially off the list.

This past weekend my wife made reservations for dinner at 8p on a Saturday night. We arrived promptly and were told by the hostess, ""Dat'll be twenty bucks. Each."" She exhaled her cigarette and outstretched her palm. ""My husband and I made reservations this afternoon,"" replied my wife. I added, ""We've never had a cover charge when we've come for dinner..."" Rolling her eyes and putting her hand on her hip she explains, ""Dinner is optional. Da cover charge is not."" I was seething as I grabbed my wife's hand and turned to leave.

Nowhere on the amateur looking & poorly maintained website does it specify a cover charge. Not when my wife made the reservation did the host specify a cover charge. What happened to Andy's Jazz Club?

Great Jazz!

The music was amazing. The service was average. They seemed not too have the rush time crowd under control. The food was over priced and was not tasty. The entry charge was worth every ws great.

THE place for Jazz-Period

Andy's IS Jazz in Chicago. It always has been. I get in there infrequently. Whenever I go, it always feels like home. If you're from out of town, or in town, sit at the bar and chat with new friends.
