Owner L.C. Thurman reopened this legendary South Side music hang in Hyde Park's Harper Court mall. No doubt, top-notch blues and jazz musicians--both well-knowns and newbies--will continue to grace the stage. Expect a crowd that's a mix of University of Chicago students, Hyde Park locals, music lovers and fans of the original Checkerboard. A spacious bar and seating area with checkerboard motif create a cozy community feel where you can kick back and listen to the music.
