I don't know if the other reviewers are employees, owners, or just don't care about anything but the music, but this was the most disappointing place we visited on our first trip to Vermont. Expectations weren't that high. It is what it is - a college dive with an eclectic group of musicians making the circuit. I have never; however,... More

Local/New England beers & great, affordable cocktails. Live music every night, attached to small restaurant, (Duino. Duende) that serves full menu. Also attached to "Light Club Lamp Shop" a funky wine bar/ dessert lounge. This place has it all! A must see for Burlington visits, it's very much a locals spot, been there for 15 years.

The ambiance is perfect the food is delicious and music plays around the clock. If you could ask for more then you should check your priorities. We ordered the Cubano which was the best sandwich I've ever had and the Sweet Loader which absolutely delicious. The $5 shake is a great drink and The service was just fine. Everything combined...

Radio Bean is a coffeehouse with interesting food and some of the best beer in VT - we all tried the Shake (stout with coffee and maple syrup) -- it is definitely something to put on your bucket list. However many of us went back to their drafts after finishing the beer. The only negative was our waitress -- she... More

We were suggested this place by the guys at Zero Gravity Brewery for the music scene. We went about 9pm on Thursday night and they had a nice jazz band playing. The place has the small college town funky coffee shop you would expect. We didn't eat but the tables are close so we saw other's meals with a variety... More

The free, live music starts at around 7pm - every night. Some of the acts I saw were real class. Each act has its own time slot & they keep to it. I like that . This place is a cool spot to drink / eat - just of Pearl Street. The drinks are cheaply priced. The staff are cool... More

Anyone going to Burlington should stop by Radio Bean and try a $5 shake - a pint of stout with a shot of espresso and a splash of maple syrup. Sounds weird? Try the best thing to ever hit my mouth. They have a street food menu now that is pretty solid, and very fun live music most nights of... More

It was freezing outside, so we went in to have some lattes. We had the best chai latte and matte latte! We stayed for lunch, and were pleasantly surprised by our plates: amazing falafels, and pretty delicious vegan poutine. Nice little place, great food, great lattes. It's a winner!

Radio Bean hosts excellent live indie music, ranging from bands to solo instrumentalist (recent example: fingerstyle guitar wizard Glenn Roth). The venue consists of two large rooms; a bar room with a stage at the front and tables for those who want to toss back a cocktail and listen to great music and a larger dining room where you can...
