For more than a century, the building housing the Green Mill has been a landmark for those looking to lift their spirits.
Starting as a roadhouse, which mourners stopped in for refreshments while on their way to the cemetery, it quickly lost
its somber clientele to become one of the most revered jazz clubs in the Windy City.
The Mill’s history starts in 1907, when the building was constructed as Pop Morse’s Roadhouse. After only
a few years, it was sold and revamped into a jazz club, attracting Chicago’s underworld, including Al Capone’s
henchmen, during the ‘20s. Many infamous celebrities have walked through its doors, and many infamous jazz performers
have graced its stage.
With an interior design patterned after Clark Monroe’s Uptown House in Harlem (as it looked in the ‘40s),
Green Mill tickets are practically your key to another time. Step back to the Roaring ‘20s,
when speakeasies and jazz legends were the talk of the town. Don’t miss out—check out their calendar of events
