Chord On Blues opened in 1996 as a premier blues club. For ten years we featured the best in the blues biz. Every weekend talent such as KoKo Taylor, Dickie Betts, Elvin Bishop, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Lonnie Brooks (to name a few) graced our stage and wowed our crowd.

In that decade we recorded four live records that enjoy international distribution to this day and produced two Blues Festivals. In 2006, Chord On Blues received the ultimate honor, the Blues Foundation’s prestigious “Blues Club of the Year” award.

Now, we’re trying something new! On Fridays and Saturdays we feature the very best live music that Chicago has to offer. From Roots Rock to Jam Bands to Punk and Metal. We’ll also throw some DJs and dance nights into this musical gumbo. So … come and check us out!! Keep an eye on our schedule and stop down for some seriously affordable drink specials. We feature a great selection of bottled beer and draft beer. We’ve got pool tables, dart boards, indoor bag boards, and a huge outdoor patio.

We’re located on the river in beautiful downtown St. Charles and the parking is free! So get off the couch and come on down … shoot some pool, throw some darts, dance to the music or … just put your feet up, grab a frosty beverage and a burger, and hang out with our awesome staff!
