Kingston Mines is one of the best known spots in Chicago for listening to the blues. Originally it was called The Kingston Mines Theatre Company and over the years transformed into a music venue. The original version of the musical, Grease was written and first performed at Kingston Mines before moving on to Broadway.
Kingston Mines today is a mainstay of Chicago blues with two stages and shows every night of the week. Over the years it has played host to such guests as Mick Jagger, Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Robert Plant and Stevie Ray Vaughan and many others.
