Live Music (Piano, Jazz) AND Good Food?
My partner has been begging me to take her to a piano bar for years. For her birthday next month, I'd like to actually do it. Are there any good places in Chicago to see live music and eat good food? A romantic atmosphere would be nice, too. Location doesn't matter--anywhere in Chicagoland.
Check out Pops for Champange at 601 North State. They have appetizers and small plates, not a full dinner, and they'll have a jazz group, so it's not quite a piano bar. It is, however, one of the better places for music, food and atmosphere.
You could try Andy's Jazz Club on Hubbard. Haven't eaten there in years (and I remember the food being quite mediocre back then), but the music is great. You could go to Shaw's Oyster Bar first for a bite, then go next door to Andy's. Keefer's is also nearby. Enjoy!
