I went here twice while in PV recently and while it's an attractive venue, don't go here if actually hearing the live music being performed is important to you.
There seem to be a lot of customers and even the bartender who behave as if this is just a regular bar, laughing and talking VERY loudly the entire time, as if there weren't a living, breathing musician just a few feet away performing and trying to be heard.
This is a small space, so this dampened the experience of hearing the music for me, even with the amplification for the musicians.
I think the management needs to remind their staff, at least, to keep their voices down during the music. I guess they wouldn't want to risk saying anything similar to the loud customers who are running up a bar tab..even if there are other customers like me who might actually like to be able to hear the music..But it would help if the bartender whispered or kept his voice down during the performance.The bar crowd might actually follow his cue and show some respect..
But I left this place wondering, why do they bother having live musicians, if their own staff don't care about the noise level?
And I wonder why do some customers come here if all they want to do is chat loudly and laugh at their own stories when there are a lot of bars nearby without live music where they could be doing the same thing..does it occur to them that some people here DO come to hear the music?
This happened both times that I went in July...The first time were two very good Mexican musicians singing; a few days later there was a young American singer performing Broadway tunes with a karaoke-like accompaniment..
He had a very nice voice, and I felt sorry for him when he was trying to sing a sensitive ballad that had been specifically requested by a customer, and then having people six feet away from him roaring with laughter and the bartender carrying on very loud conversations with customers over the entire songs...at one point the singer was finishing a very touching song and on his final notes we had to listen to several queens around the bar shrieking with laughter..thanks for ruining the mood of the song!
It's too bad, because this is a space that I could like and I like the idea of hearing music, and the waiter who served us was fine. But I left after my second visit not having overly positive impressions of this place..I wish management would make up their minds what kind of place they want this to be.
