The Cameron House is a funky little space with small tables and interesting murals. It's a great place to catch local bands and solo musicians. No food is sold here and the bar is cash-only, so come with full stomachs and wallets! There's no cover...More

The Cameron House is still decorated in a 1950's style and is a bare bones saloon with some table seating. They serve only drinks, at a very reasonable price, but let people bring in their own food if they want to eat dinner or a...More

Cute place and great music. It's pretty small and not a lot of area to sit. Drinks were pricy and they only take cash so make you you take money out. The machine costs 1.75$

Just go there. It's a very friendly bar that has amazing local bands. Caliber of music is high and level of bar coolness is too. Tried to download the three weekday bands we saw. Failed. But go there and enjoy yourself.

These kinds of bars don't exist in small towns. I really enjoyed the gritty honest vibe of this bar. The back room costs 5 dollars to enter (not sure why) but the music was good and local. I generally enjoy all live music, but I...More
