The Lounge

Joy-Blue is more than just a great place to hang. The unique artwork on our walls makes for a sure conversation starter, whether you come with friends or you're meeting new people. The main bar is a big open space with a lot of activity, and you can get a little more cozy in The Lounge, our middle room with a martini bar and comfortable seating. The Blue Room offers a little of everything, from a pool table, to an open space perfect for your next private party, to a plush and intimate seating area.

There's something going on at Joy-Blue every night of the week. We have daily drink specials, and a jukebox featuring the best selection of blues and jazz. Thursdays and Saturdays, and sometimes on Fridays, we have a DJ spinning the coolest tunes. And Wednesday nights have become one of the most talked-about events in Chicago, with our weekly poetry readings hosted by Lisa Hemminger. Come on by and make Joy-Blue your place to hang!
