Were you a regular at Chicago Rock Cafe in Ipswich back in its heyday?
Known as Chicago’s, the American-themed venue in Northgate Street was one of the most popular places to spend a night out, and regularly featured in the Ipswich Star’s Caught Out column.
The Chicago Rock Cafe brand thrived during the 1990s and early 2000s, offering a bar and restaurant with classic music from the 1950s to the 1980s.

The building has since been converted into the town’s easyHotel.
