Just your average bar, with one exception. It has a great history regarding Blues Bands that have played there. It's closing soon, making room for an expansion of the College. S,o go there soon, have a drink, listen to some great bands and enjoy the memorabilia.

What a great venue to watch live music. Patrick Sweany rocked the house and my wife and I really enjoyed the setting for a date night. Good selection of beers as well.

We celebrated a lovely family member's birthday here. The Jarekus Singleton Band. They were absolutely AWESOME... The place is very small and intimate,Dress for summer it gets quite warm.... The bar-tending left a lot to be desired. Order what you want & get what the bartender decides you should have. Almost everyone in our party and there were 13 of... More

I went to the Double Door Inn as a teenager in the 1970's. It was a dive then and it's still a dive but it has always hosted the best music schedule to be found anywhere, from the cutting edge of new music to the legends. It's a multi-genre bar, the only criteria being that the acts can more than... More

Awesome experience ...great music, friendly people and good drinks, kept our feet moving. Loved the school type desk seating. Great singers and musicians from various bands all for a $5 cover. Definitely going back when in Charlotte ... Good location near college campus. Diverse clientele ...nothing bad to say ...check it out! One of the biggest hits of our trip!

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.
