Jazz Institute of Chicago

2013 Jazz Club Tour

The Jazz Institute of Chicago's Annual Jazz Club Tour, presented by The Drake Hotel  rolls out  Wednesday August 28, 2013.

 What is the intersection of tradition and innovation? Jazz, of course! Find that intersection and many interesting side streets between 6:00 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday, August 28, 2013 at our Annual Jazz Club Tour. Special thanks to our new presenting sponsor, The Drake Hotel and media sponsor WDCB.

The Jazz Club Tour takes its patrons for a ride to venerable jazz clubs, small joints, and community centers throughout Chicago. Explore and enjoy the longstanding bebop traditions of the Jazz Showcase in the south Loop, the upscale environs of the Drake Hotel’s Palm Court and Coq d’Or, and everything in between.

All you have to do to join the fun is buy a promotional button that gives access to all participating clubs as well as trolley transportation between clubs.

On-line and phone sales are now closed.  Tickets are available at participating clubs now through August 28.
