Uptown was a booming nightlife district in the 1920s and 1930s and number of its old-school movie houses and Art Deco buildings are restored to their former glory. Undoubtedly, the Green Mill is the place to be when you’re in Uptown. This 100-year-old jazz club still has the same sultry feel of its Prohibition heyday. Grab a seat in the booth at the end of the bar; it was the regular spot for Al Capone.
