As one of Charlotte's oldest bars, this one comes complete with low ceilings, exposed wooden beams, and dim lights. Just what you would expect from a cozy Blues bar reminiscent of the basement bars in Chicago. The drinks are reasonable and so are the cover charges if there are any depending on the talent.

Cozy atmosphere with wonderful entertainment. They offer a variety of bands each week and showcase local talent. Stand or sit, it's up to you.

I used to go there quite frequently and saw some great acts perform. I would generally sit at the bar and always had a fantastic time. But ever since the bartender George left service has gone down the toilet. So I stopped going!

This is one of the best places in the Charlotte area to get your fix for live music. The place is always alive with music. It can get cramped when a good band is placing but the vibe is wonderful. Food is not as good as the bands, but I don't go for the food, I go for the music.

The Double Door has the best live music around, still small and friendly, hosting today's greatest musicians - just last week with Tab Benoit and his crazy wild blues! One of the oldest blues bars in the country, worth the trip for the pics on the wall alone.

The jazz was brilliant with Bill and his band leading most numbers but inviiting audience members up to join in either playing along or on vocals. The audience gets to be up close to the music. Drinks are available from the bar but eat dinner before you go. Three set every Tuesday night and the show starts at 7pm. If... More
