Great spot for live music!

Stopped in and were lucky enough to hear a set from a great local band. Good beers on tap and friendly staff and patrons.

simply the best variety nightlife establishment in VT. historic and still hip. they book enough compelling national acts to harmonize their roll as gate keeper for middle-echelon NE bands. the wings wear creative and punchy sauces and the waitresses are not only hotter on average than the typical VT-6s in BTV hospitality, but they are by and large excellent at...

We went on a Dead Set night. They were pretty good and we had a great time. The clientele seemed to be mostly uvm students, definitely some younger (I think it's 18+) and some older folks (50s and 60s). Decent prices on the drinks - we got a couple "ketel and sodas" for $6 each. Heavy on the soda and... More

With two floors of live entertainment open 7 days a week, Nectar's has something for everyone. In addition to great tunes, Nectar's dishes out great food in addition to their world famous gravy fries. The burgers are amazing but my personal favorite are their wings.

This is a two floor bar/club that is definitely worth checking out. Seems like the first floor is more mellow with a good bar and live music/restaurant. The top floor is a full on club (at night) with a solid bar for the amount of people in there. Good music and strong service for a place that is packed. Definitely... More

Want some cheese and gravy fries? No?! Then you don't know what your missing. This club has a decent music and dance seen, but it has been a late night fave for a quick bite. I'm a little old for the late night (i.e. 2 am) crowds now, but I remember people lining up around the block for some eats!

Not sure if the billing was right, $20.00 charge at the door for the entertainment, food was average entertainment that night was pretty poor, you have to people watch here, people dancing and playing air guitars, all out of tune ......even the air guitars
