416 South Clark Street, Chicago, 60605
This is one of few contemporary Chicago jazz clubs, with live performances that keep music lovers coming back every weekend. The actual location is nothing special and somewhat easy to miss, but the artists that Close Up 2 books liven it up with covers and original material. There’s a $10 admission as well as a two drink minimum – we know, that last part is tough to hear. The food menu is Asian themed and steeply priced, a kobe beef steak being the most extravagant, and lesser options like sushi and salads.
