Great talent, fun times, and even offer bbq ribs in the back. I stongly suggest it as a go to if you enjoy talented blues musicians live. They have two stages that the band will rotate on so sit tight and the band will be back in front of you in no time.

Tuesday July 26th, 2005.\n\nTwo bars, great seating, the warm-up band and Joanna Connor played jointly until after 2:00 a.m. She was incredible. The place was fairly clean, the bartenders were a bit on the arrogant side but mixed agreeable cocktails, wait staff were cordial and receptive. Crowd was 20-somethings mostly. If you step into ""Kingston Mines"" with little or no knowledge of the bands playing that evening, you should be more than pleasantly surprised.

went on a saturday nite and it was rocking, very crowded. went back on sunday and it was quiet and got to sit. the music was awesome, on sudays if you pay a small cover at B.L.U.E.S across the street they let you in here for free. i caught a set at BLUES and then went into Kingston Mines and saw a band, when they were done i went to the other stage and saw another band. then i went back to BLUES for one more set before heading home. and these guys on Sunday were awesome bands, very well know blues men. three bands in one nite. would love to go back soon. THE BEST! staff at both places were very nice too!

The Citysearch review is right about this being a reliable last stop on any rough night you don't want to end. But it's also a decent place to be any time after 11:30. The performers at that time have physical energy at that point (though perhaps the Holy Ghost doesn't visit them that early as often), plus the kitchen's open for good ribs. They have some weird pouring rules posted, but the prices make up for it. The raspy-voiced emcee guy is kind of a fool, but he's an institution there and who am I to argue? Not that it matters, but they're eternally renovating and the place seems almost intentionally ramshackle.
