Love to go here for some music. I prefer something small and more intimate and this is certainly that. I do like having some seating available as I don't really want to stand the entire time. Sometimes they do put out the chairs and sometimes they don't. Wish they would indicate which shows will have the seating and which ones... More

If you haven't been, please go before Charlotte's Nasty Nazi Developers buy & destroy this wonderful little bar & nightclub. Great sound, superb staff & excellent artists.

After doing some research I realize that I was wrong and jumped the gun on this review. After doing some checking I found that most all reputable open mics in Charlotte charge a cover charge so i...

It's an "intimate venue" (small) but we love it. Have seen MANY shows here. Pulls in local/regional/national/international bands/musicians. They book a lot of eclectic bands, many in the Americana genre but it really varies from country to rock to weird (in a good way). The sound is superb (the Muse is owned by a musician/recording engineer). Many nights feature 2... More

Hi Grover, Thank you for visiting The Evening Muse. We pride ourselves on our award-winning live music venue, and great sounding room. The $3 cover that everyone pays helps to keep the doors open, the sound guy paid, and also puts some gas money into our Featured Performer's pocket. Most of our weekly Featured Performer's are touring musicians. I'm sorry... More

This is a nice dive-y vibe with all kinds of singer songwriter talent flowing through. Located in NODA, so you can walk around the hood for dinner prior to a show here, or grab a coffee at Smelley Cat.
