Our Story...

The history of how Andy's Jazz Club came to be one of Chicago's best known & most respected jazz venues started in the 1950's as an oasis for the employees of the newspaper industry.  "Andy's Lounge" was created. Serving shots, beer and pub grub to the ample waves of pressmen from the newspaper industry as the focus until mid 1970's when ownership of the venue changed hands to Scott Chisholm.  A transition that kickstarted the lounge's transformation into Chicago's marquee Jazz hang.

The first live Jazz shows came in 1977 as "Jazz At Noon" and were presented with no stage, special lighting or much amplification.  Those first audiences' fanfare were excellent, and crowds slowly began to build.  Andy's soon expanded the "Jazz at Noon" Friday sessions to include multiple days of the week and later into the evening spawning "Jazz at Five" & "Jazz at Nine" sets with music going well past midnight.  Andy's Jazz Club was in full swing!

Over the past 70 years, "Andy's" has watched the neighborhood expand and grow into the trendy hub it is today.  While the "Jazz at Noon" is no longer offered..."Jazz at Five" & "Jazz at Nine" are still very much ALIVE!  Andy's currently presents four 75-minute shows nightly with start times of 6pm, 8:15pm, 10:30pm.  The musical lineup always featuring the top Chicago Jazz artists around.  A truly unique to Chicago cultural experience nurtured by Scott Chisholm and continued on today by his sons Chris, Jeff & Brandon who run the venue nightly.
