What Our Guests Say About the Live Jazz

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.  We appreciate the opportunity to share some feedback from previous guests.

The setting is intimate

Came here for girls night and had a wonderful time. The setting is intimate with live jazz in the background. I ordered oysters, scallop risotto, and ended it with chocolate praline house made ice cream. The food was fresh and delicious.

awesome jazz bar feel

I was super surprised by how much I enjoyed it!! You don’t normally hear this name thrown around when thinking about amazing Chicago steakhouses, but I feel this is a “little hidden gem.” The ambiance really was something special – at the bar was the awesome jazzbar feel, then the restaurant was nicely, romantically lit. The food was, obviously, incredible. … Finally, the service and our waiter was so amazing!

Style and Sophistication in Our Jazz Era Lounge

Settle into our “hidden gem” in the heart of River North.  Escape from bustling State Street into our candlelit, spirited, jazz era lounge.  The jazz trio will have you feeling like you never want to leave.  You are invited to stylishly relax with urban dining that is sophisticated, but warm and welcoming. Our full from scratch dinner menu is available in the lounge, but you are welcome to visit for just craft cocktails and jazz if that’s your vibe.

The Piano: Part of Our History

Keene’s grandmother, Sarah Armour, was a great philanthropist of music in Chicago. A musician herself, the CSO, Ravinia, and the Lyric Opera  all benefited from her passionate support. The Steinway Grand Concert Piano at Tortoise Supper Club was gifted to Sarah on her 10th birthday in 1919.
