  • Although I am sad to not be able to enter (open hours per day), be at the door of Chess Records is something that goose bumps all lover of the blues. The original facade with the original numbers. The mere fact of a photo in that inning, is worth the trip to Chicago. If you love the blues they must pass through there.

  • This is where rock n roll started (through the blues of course). Gave me goosebumps to be in the recording studio. Must see if you're in Chicago.
  • Currently closed until further notice. Still cool to see the building however
  • As the son of noted chess drummer BILLIE STEPNEY this is by far the best kept srcret in the ciry! Tourist come from all over the world to make a pilgrimage to this music mecca.yet mist natives don't even know it's here🐵 Why not invest $10 for the bestmusic history lesson you'll ever receive? BISHOP GREGORY K. STEPNEY SON OF FUTURE ROCK & ROLL INDUCTEE BILLIE STEPNEY DRUMMER P.S. LOOK HIM UP HE'S THE ONLY ONE OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES NOT IN. LETS MAKE IT RIGHT & PUSH TO GET HUM IN.
  • Willie Dixon rocks, who doesn't love a good facts filled adventure through the history of real music.
  • Great that they managed to hold on to the place, but it's a pretty half-hearted attempt at a museum. The video they make you watch is pretty hilarious.

Where to stay in Chicago

The Midwest's major center for business conventions, Chicago boasts many affordable places to stay, with most hotels located around the airport and the city's central business district. To discover the city from a comfortable base within walking distance of most tourist attractions, aim for one of the big chain hotels in the downtown area. If you're traveling on a limited budget and wish to get a deeper sense of Chicago's many diverse neighborhoods, consider staying away from the pricey city center and explore suburbs on a commuter train line for easy city access.
