Great service. This was tucked away right around the corner from our hotel in printers alley. Fried catfish was amazing!

Certainly a great blues bar. We went midday on a Saturday and the place was packed. 2 great singers and musicians playing. Bee was cold and we didn’t try the food so rating only as a music bar.

We went in here a couple of times. It is definitely a unique old blues bar. The place itself is small and quaint, but also very dark even during the day. The only daylight is through the door in the alley and there are no...More

We found this little gem in printers alley which is a short walk away from the honky tonk bars. Good music at night and prices for drinks are reasonable. Food is average.

We went for my Birthday. Though it was a Sunday night we were able to catch The Stacy Mitchhart Band. We have seen them perform other times and love them. We did eat there this time and we’re underwhelmed. The drinks were good and cold....More

We visited this bar midweek and were lucky to find two seats as the place was packed. This is a rather small place and very intimate. We watched two bands and they were both great. The bar was very busy but our waitress was good...More

We really enjoyed downstairs at the bar...the end seats closer to the door you enter.

This place is real casual but if I was going with a group I would want to see if I could reserve. I would say this place is more for drinks and enjoying the music as opposed to eating, although we didn't eat there ourselves.
