We stopped in for some chow before a UConn game. Great tasty wings. Several sauces. I had a good chicken sandwich. Nice beer selection. My friends got burgers and noted that they were a bit overcooked. Still good all around. New parking lot across the...More

I guess there were about 70+ people here on a Saturday night after 7:30 p.m. to celebrate an event that carried over from the Convention. When I arrived about 30 minutes into the celebration, there were no plates, no forks, no napkins. I actually asked...More

If you go at night for the music, you won't see anyone eating. The bands start late, and go late. But they get some excellent acts, especially for fans of 60s and 70s psychedelia. Like Shakedown, a great tribute to Greatful Dead, and the Marks...More

Every Monday night, from 8 to 10 pm, the Hartford Jazz Orchestra performs at the Arch Street Tavern. The orchestra consists of 16 to 18 excellent musicians with lots of brass (trumpets, trombones, saxophones) plus woodwinds, keyboard, bass, drums – it’s all there. There’s no...More
