I came in here for a beer and found it pretty interesting. There is a venue for live music and out back there are fires and a movie playing. It was a very relaxed environment. If you are looking for a nice place to chill out then this is a good option.

A friends band was playing and the show was sold out, so I was worried it would be super crowded. But we felt really comfortable, not squeezed in, and it was easy to enjoy the music and quickly get more drinks. Great staff, nice and intimate venue. Love the neighborhood too!

Bar right off to the side in the back of the concert area. The sound on the night we went (Tim and Chitty of Medicine for the People) was perfect. Not too... More

I seen rock shows here and the sound is terrible. Too much echo and the sound ends up being muddy when they guitars are playing real loud.

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

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
