In North Chatt there are some great restaurants/bars - Foodworks, the Five- must have the baked avacado- Embargo 62 which has authentic Cuban and has had music on the weekend. Beast and Barrell with great smoked meats and Poblanos or Taco mamicita for TN-Mex. For Music, check what's going on at the choo choo complex on the Southside-songbirds has some great acts but gets crowded.Clydes has music late on the weekends and great wings, the Feed on Main Street has local music and decent food- good atmosphere- no shortage of food and drink!!

I have to disagree with the suggestion of Five. They serve only 5 options and they cannot seem to do them correctly!

The Social at the Public House in town has music. Possibly “Stir”, The Terminal and Big River Brewery.

Lots of local bars have local music, one person entertainment.

Puckett's, after dinner, converts to a bar with music, country music, and often times its pretty darn good entertainment from Nashville. Puckett's is just across the river near the aquarium.

As mentioned, the Choo Choo Complex has three music venues. Worth checking to see who they have booked for the night you want.

Others have been mentioned.

Non-touristy restaurants to mention would be Terra Mae, Two Ten Jack, and The Public House which are near the city center. Alleia, Main Street Meats, and The Flying Squirrel which are in the Southside.

Delta, above, has already mentioned good choices for the North Shore.

If you seek a locals hang-out with local music then look at Mike's Hole in the Wall on the North Shore. Another would be Tremont Tavern in North Chatt.

For food and drinks : The Social / Public House, Terra Mae, Bitter Alibi, Easy Bistro, Community Pie for really good pizza, Matilda Midnight in the Dwell Hotel for drinks (the Dwell Hotel is cool to see anyway; Terra Mae is here also).
