What to do now that Ernie Biggs has closed?

Mom (85) and I (61) are beyond crushed that Ernie's is gone! We've been to Branson 6 times, seen LOTS of the shows, and Ernie's has always been the highlight of our trip. We loved the live music and the "sing along" nature of the place. Is there anything remotely like it in town now?

We loved Ernie Biggs as well. There is a location in Springfield but I'm going to guess you may not have a car with your or want to make that drive at night.

Crazy Craig's Cheeky Monkey bar can be fun if you are into dive bars but otherwise we really haven't found anything else to compare yet.

Thanks so much for your reply and suggestion. We’ve not been to dive bars but I know Monkey gets good reviews so may give that a try! Why not?

We are headed to Branson tomorrow with a mission to find anything comparable to Ernie’s (and you are right, we don’t want to drive all the way to Springfield). Will report back

Loved Ernie Biggs Branson! Ted and the gang was great! Wish a similar bar/club would open in the same space.

Thx for the post which bumped this up!

Our planned visit didn’t happen due to health reasons with my Mom. Planning to try again in October. Hope springs eternal for another Ernie’s!
