  • It started small and it's stayed that way. Operating since the 60's this is a place where 'the greats' played before they were great. With seating for just over 100, at tables and on couches, this storied music venue has an intimate atmosphere that unites the audience and the performer. There is a menu offering beer, wine and non-alcoholic drinks as well as a few appetizers and snacks.
  • Possibly the best local place for live music. The offer adult and family friend events. The volunteer staff are always kind and easy to enjoy the music with. Might be tight for strollers or walkers but the staff will work with you. The food and cookies are amazing!!! Easy walk to parking garage and other food options.
