Its Friday Fish Fry was rated the best in the local area in a Woodstock Independent poll and one of the top 3 in McHenry County by Shaw Publications and one of the top 2 in McHenry County by McHenry County Living.
It is an eclectic basement bar and restaurant based on a 1960’s theme. Tie-dyes, beaded curtains and lava lamps bring you back to a time when magic and music mattered. There are 14 beers on tap as well as a wide selection of bottles and tall boys, and a large selection of liquors and wines.
There is an open jam and house band every Wednesday night starting around 7:00 pm. Every Sunday there is a 9-ball tournament starting at 6:30 pm. There are occasional weekend bands and other festivities. Check their Facebook page at facebook.com/liquidblues for details.
Oh, and Liquid Blues was named the Best Video Gaming Location by Shaw Publication’s 2016 “Best of the Fox” survey.
So come for the ambiance, stay for the food, and try your luck on one of the 5 video gaming terminals.
