Norman’s Bistro – great Sunday jazz venue on the South Side

It’s great to see a place like Norman’s Bistro thriving in the North Kenwood/Oakland area of Chicago.  The major east/west streets of the South Side used to feature dozens of nightclubs with live jazz.  After decades of decline, life on 43rd and 47th street is starting to pick up. Norman’s, located on 43rd near the lake, features live jazz every Sunday evening and is a great local joint.  Check it out and be sure to take a drive around the neighborhood to check out the fantastic late 19th century architecture!
