Live music pretty much all the time!

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!

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.

I went here on a solo trip to check out the scene in Charlotte. It was an awesome and friendly little spot. I got fresh home made King cake upon walking in the door (it was around Mardi Gras---not always to be expected when here). The beer was cheap and GOOD! The acoustics for live music were really incredible. I... More

We love this place. Just the right size and comfortable atmosphere. Great for all ages, not just the young. Could get a better wine list. Just wish there was a more direct bus to it. We leave the car at home when we go out.

If you are looking for a small, but mighty music boite, this is your place. They have excellent acts, in a very intimate and rustic setting right in the middle of hipster Noda...worth a visit, or two!

We visited the Evening Muse for coffee one morning and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The interior is bohemian and has an area for live entertainment. We appreciated the staff who took our picture at the cafe entrance and were very friendly and helpful.

This small building at the corner of 36th street and davidson has been around for a long time. The vibe inside is geared towards music lovers. I have seen some very special intimate shows in this place. Don't miss it
