“Great venue for live music!”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

Although I've never eaten here, I've listened to live music while enjoying a well-poured drink a few times. The club is set up really well- the bar level is a little lower than stage level so you don't have to shout to be heard. There's an upper level with a great view of the stage. Stage level has tables but you can still make room to dance. Cool spot!

“Fantastic bar for live music”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Visit this casual, cozy bar to enjoy live blues music and you'll think you were in Greenwich Village NYC! The mural around the stage was sprayed by a graffiti artist- amazing! The food is typical bar food but come her for the live music/atmosphere and you won't be disappointed.

“Great Music Venue, Smoking Permitted-Yuck”
Reviewed December 5, 2011

T-bird books great bands but could they please move the smoking outside? I took Mrs. T there after she spend beaucoup bucks on her hair and she was pissed. "I spent $160 on my hair, I'd hoped it would look good for at least a few days".

Terrific dive with great beer & live music. The menu is small but good -- mostly BBQ stuff.
