I have not been here in years and I was shopping when a gallery owner suggested I go for the music. We arrived around 7:30, as I mistakenly believed that music started between 7:30 and 8:00. Happy Hour had ended.The food quite simply is terrible,...More

Rustic, mahogany bar which often has good local jazz or rock bands. Generally, Sierra Nevada on tap and Allagash White bottles in reserve. Good place at very bottom of Hill across street from CVS.

Limited bar and even more limited food , but for this place,it's all about the music and dancing. Great small pub . Mostly locals but very welcoming. Beware of 8 dollar cover charge, at least on this Friday night.

And I mean this in a good way. Stopped in for music, had a few beers. Clean, full of character and characters. Locals say don't eat here, only because the bartender had to go into the kitchen to cook your order. Be sure to walk...More

Funky great time for music and drinks. Local joint, nice bar scene. Very limited basic menu, good soup. Go for Music and Drinks. Close to Montgomery county. No off street parking but looks like plenty of free on street parking.

Very nice selection of beer. Some amazing musicians pop in. The weekends tend to have the best music, but open mic and various artist during the week can also be a lot of fun. You never know what you might see/hear.

The best way to find out you is playing is to go the Mermaid Lane Events page or call the bar directly. That is what I would do if I wanted to know the schedule.
