Following a recommendation from our hotel we headed to The Cobblestone for an early evening drink. We had a lovely evening. The live music was fantastic. Could if happily stayed into the evening but had a restaurant reservation. Would definitely return.

There was singing as well. A couple people were there just to sing traditional songs, some a'cappella and some with musicians there. Have fun. Amazing place!
