3160Chicago Piano and Cabaret opened in February 2006 featuring some of the top cabaret and piano entertainment in the Chicago area. With a regular line-up of top performers from Chicago and often features special guest from across the country. We hope you will stop in and enjoy to the sounds of our entertainers performing your favorite songs from throughout the years and giving you some comic relief as well. The lavish, rich burnt-orange and brown interior sets the mood for a night of high-energy pianists and show-stopping crooners.
An intimate jazz and piano bar epitomizes the quintessential cabaret. 3160, a multi-level venue, showcases cover-free live performances of locally and nationally renowned talents. With an elongated bar and dimly-lit antique lanterns occupying the golden-hued main floor bar area. Several quaint cocktail tables and chairs fill the upper level, where a baby grand piano, the primary focal point of entertainment, remains nestled in the far corner. Seating on the upper level requires the standard two-drink minimum; however, unlike most cabarets, this minimum includes either alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages. Complete with theatrical lighting and a backdrop of velvet curtains, a small enclave encased within the side wall periodically serves as a second stage. The masculine aura of the downstairs space features dart boards, along with dark brown leather furnishings. Adhering to Chi-town convention, 3160 encourages patrons to join their very own dart league. Take advantage of this charming gem because joints like these are a dying breed.
Remember, there is never a cover charge and our friendly mixologists are always ready to serve you your favorite cocktail. So, stop in to relax and be entertained . . . afternoons, evenings and late night - you are always welcome.

History - Originally open as the Annex 3 in Chicago in 1984 and moved to the current location at 3160 North Clark Street in 1990. For many years the “A3” as it was called by the regulars was a favorite meeting place for gay athletes and their supporters as well. But as with most things in life the time came to change the bar with a new interior and an overall face lift. Renamed in February 2006,”3160”by owner Jim Flint. Jim has completely remodeled the club and it is now a relaxing bar with great music and a number of known cabaret entertainers appearing in the piano lounge five nights a week. Jim has chosen a unique mix of performers so as to appeal to audiences of all ages and sexual preference.
