The 1st floor is rich with memorabilia and has numerous sound studios. Intimate concerts are held in the back room and... More

This little venue is almost like watching a show in someone's basement. Good little venue that holds about 100 people. Nice staff. NO ALCOHOL. Comfortable, nice little place.

McCabes is a legendary concert venue. Small enough that there is not a bad seat in the house. They book quality acts and the ticket prices are good. Cookies and tea are a dollar each.

If you like acoustic music, if you want to go to a store where you can go to the back room and try out the guitars that are hanging on the walls, or if you just want to look at the unusual instruments that are hanging on the walls I suggest you check them out. You'll get a sense of... More
