Radio Bean is a unique music venue. It's low lighting, mismatched furniture, and vintage vibe create an atmosphere of low-key, coffee house of the 60's Greenwich Village-esque cool. Very different than other spots in BTV. You gotta experience it once..

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.

I don't know if the other reviewers are employees, owners, or just don't care about anything but the music, but this was the most disappointing place we visited on our first trip to Vermont. Expectations weren't that high. It is what it is - a...More
