I wrote a review about the Evening Muse in Charlotte NC several months ago and received a couple of reply's to my review. After doing some research I realize that I was wrong and jumped the gun on this review. After doing some checking I found that most all reputable open mics in Charlotte charge a cover charge so i...

It's an "intimate venue" (small) but we love it. Have seen MANY shows here. Pulls in local/regional/national/international bands/musicians. They book a lot of eclectic bands, many in the Americana genre but it really varies from country to rock to weird (in a good way). The sound is superb (the Muse is owned by a musician/recording engineer). Many nights feature 2... More

Hi Grover, Thank you for visiting The Evening Muse. We pride ourselves on our award-winning live music venue, and great sounding room. The $3 cover that everyone pays helps to keep the doors open, the sound guy paid, and also puts some gas money into our Featured Performer's pocket. Most of our weekly Featured Performer's are touring musicians. I'm sorry... More

Fantastic place to see live music! The Evening Muse has a ton of great talent performing in a room with great sound. Never a bad way to spend an evening.

This is a nice dive-y vibe with all kinds of singer songwriter talent flowing through. Located in NODA, so you can walk around the hood for dinner prior to a show here, or grab a coffee at Smelley Cat.

The coffee here is "interesting", and while not necessarily my taste, the reason I will not go back is the absolutely filthy condition of the bathroom! I mean, this is an eating establishment and the attention to sanitary conditions in the kitchen is reflected (I believe) in the bathroom!

Thank you for your review, Steve. I see you were referencing the coffee shop, though, called The Daily Press which is no longer in our building. I hope you will come back again to see one of our many live shows in the evening. More

We went to the Evening Muse to hear some live music in NODA. It was a very intimate setting to hear talented artist perform. The bar offered a wide variety of beers on tap and other drinks. Since it was fall, I had to sample a few of the pumpkin beers. Everybody was very friendly, the music was great. If... More

We've been to the Evening Muse three times to see the same artist Liz Longley when she's in Charlotte. The first two times we arrived early and snagged seats. The third time it was standing only (with the exception of a few bar stools). We staked out a spot near the front but ultimately found ourselves behind much taller folks... More

Every show at the Evening Muse is a new experience. You never know who might show up. I went to one show there and sat in front of Trey Anastasio and another member of the band Phish. Show up early if you want to sit.
