We and about 60 of our friends (a full house, I think) saw Radney Foster here last night. 60 people, $20 a head and cheap beers to see one of the legends of country music songwriting? I'll do that once a week. It's so small...More

We went for a show. It was a chill scene with people ages 21 to 70. The bar is a little separated from the bands so if you aren't enjoying a particular song you can relax at the bar. Overall it was a great space...More

I've seen awful reviews talking about this place being unfriendly even violent, but this is total rubbish. The door man was really cool and friendly and welcoming. The place is small with a tiny stage for bands. You have to watch the bands from a...More
