This was a hidden gem that I stumbled upon one night in Burlington. It had great live music, a cute stage and a great vibe. It was very easy to spend a night out here, and eat some delicious food.

Radio Bean is a legit neighborhood club with nightly live music, drinks, an excellent small food menu, and local color galore. Small-time talent fills a small stage, the sense of community is palpable.
