Tressa's has been a long time venue for locals and tourists, alike; the best live local and otherwise music to hit these mountains. Jazz and Blues, Rock and Soul, and always a lot of great dance bands will be playing most nights of the week. The old school New Orleans Club atmosphere was imagined and created by New Orleans native... More

I was here on a Tuesday night and Empire Strikes Brass was playing and I couldn't not walk away. The service was wonderful, the vibes were good and the owner was friendly and fun to chat with. I had a great time and plan on going back for more asap.

This place is fun period if a 3$ cover or a 10$ drink is too much go find top notch jazz & blues somewhere else. We were amazed at the quality of the band, the vocals, the solos the dance floor was packed and everyone was having a great time. A couple can go in here and have the most... More

Went to Tressa's for a show and a couple of drinks and had a great time. There's a small cover charge (at least the night we were there), bar seating, and a number of tables. Not a large place, but we were there early and grabbed a seat up front. Great band with some local musicians sitting in, on and... More

Good cocktails and fun vibe. We have come to Tressa's twice, both times to hear the group Lyric perform. The dance floor heats up with all ages later in the evening! The most that I have danced in years! We stayed until closing time. Both times we have noticed bachelorette parties come in so it is popular with the locals... More

Had a nice night listening to very good blues sounds. Small cover charge and fair prices on a bottle of wine. Small dance area. Have fun

When to see the band with my pregnant wife. Paid the "band cover charge" at the door (3 $ each) and after 10 min the owner approaches us stating if we did not wanted to purchase a drink we would have to leave the bar. So we left the bar with a bad taste in our months. Rude! Out of... More

I love Tressas. They have great bands. My fav is West Sound (mostly Motown) that plays there every Thursday and at Olive or Twist most Fridays. The band is sooooo dansable and friendly. They make a fun big deal about birthdays. I recommend Thursday nights cause it isn't crowded so there is more room on the dance floor. (weekends are... More
