  • Buddy Guy's Legends is a blues club in Chicago, Illinois. It was opened in 1989 by blues legend Buddy Guy who still owns the club and who still makes regular appearances, performing an annual residency each January. Legends is one of the last blues clubs left in Chicago, a city renowned for its own particular brand of blues. The club has hosted blues greats such as Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Junior Wells, Robert Randolph and Buddy himself. Legends has developed an international reputation. It was the site for recordings such as Guy's Live at Legends, Junior Wells:Live At Buddy Guy's Legends, and Guy's live set with Junior Wells entitled Last Time Around - Live at Legends. Prior to his death in 1983, Muddy Waters made Buddy promise to keep to Blues alive. Guy says that Legends is part of keeping that promise. Guy had owned the Checkerboard Lounge on the south side in the 70s and 80s. He closed the Checkerboard Lounge in 1985 and immediately began looking for something new. By 1989 he had found Legends' first location at 754 S Wabash inside the Loop, behind the Big Hilton on Michigan Avenue. Guy hoped that convention attendees at the Hilton would be able to walk to his club. Legends moved to its current location at 700 S. Wabash in 2010. In 2013 Legends became one of the only blues clubs to offer livestreaming concerts. Legends serves a menu of Louisiana style Cajun and Soul food including award winning gumbo, jambalaya, chicken and ribs, and catfish po'boys. Legends is currently the only place to purchase Guy's craft beer called Buddy Brew. (en)
