Visit The Green Mill's Website


The Green Mill is one of the most famous jazz clubs in Chicago. It used to be a hangout for Al Capone and his henchmen but now is one of Chicago's hottest jazz clubs. Dixieland, traditional, bebop, contemporary, progressive - played by such legendary figures as Von Freeman, Franz Jackson and Wilbur Campbell, as well as young lions Kurt Elling, Eric Alexander and Orbert Davis. All capture the broad spectrum of jazz from its root rhythms in New Orleans to New York avant-garde. Deep smokey jazz sounds fill the club in the early morning hours when soulful musicians continue to express their love of jazz by jamming 'til the early dawn.
