If a band is up and coming or wants to get close to its fans, they will probably book a show here. Mostly over 21 shows. Main floor is open space with no seating. Upstairs has maybe 50 seats which will be full minutes after the doors open- usually an hour beforehand. Want to sit? Be early. Some shows do... More

I went to this place on a Friday evening with a group of friends. We had drinks and a burgers outside first. The drinks were good the burgers were so so. The bands were all entertaining ant the last band really rocked. This is a small venue so a good place to mix and mingle .we all had fun!

We heard this place was fun, so we got tickets for the night we would be in town. Wow- we underestimated how much fun it would be. The bands were great, the space was small but it felt more intimate than small. The people that worked there were helpful and friendly. We even got to sit upstairs once there were... More

Intimate venue to see live music. Great acoustics, plenty of room to move and dance. Great little restaurant/bar attached. Huge bonus is the outdoor area with firepit and covered area, with a bar window available to order drinks and snacks from. Occasionally artists have been hanging outside with patrons. Love this place!

If you want an intimate show with great acoustics - check out this place! You feel like you are apart of the show. I have seen several bands come through town here, and it's by far one of my absolute favorites. You can go here to get a drink and hang out with your friends, or pay to go see... More

This is a fantastic venue to watch a live show in a super intimate environment. I have attended a number of shows here and it never fails to impress.
