Established in 1975 by the late Clifford Antone, Antone’s is an iconic blues venue located in downtown Austin. Over the past 40 years, Antone’s has brought Austin a variety of blues and R&B musicians from across the country including B.B. King, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Ray Charles, and James Brown, and helped develop local talent like Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Bob Schneider, Gary Clark Jr., and others. In 2015, the historic brand was restored and a new team brought the iconic venue back to the downtown Austin landscape with a renewed focus on once again making Antone’s the “Home of the Blues.”

Voted best blues club on Chicago's north side, both invested blues aficionados & blues browsers will enjoy B.L.U.E.S., 7 days a week, 365 days a year. B.L.U.E.S. features primarily local artists (e.g. Son Seals, Eddie Shaw, Magic Slim, Eddy Clearwater) in a friendly and intimate atmosphere. Stretching along its right side is a long bar, and along its left side a riser for overflow seating. Small tables mold parties into intimate groups, fostering a close atmosphere among friends and neighbors. Weekends are busy, so if you want to score a barstool, you'll need to arrive early. There is plenty of space on weeknights, though. As a matter of fact, you might find yourself elbow to elbow with your favorite blues artist having a drink on his or her day off.
