  • Visited Altar Bar in 2013 to see Reel Big Fish. Now the venue has been sold back to a church and will become a church once again.  more »

  • Fun venue for bands. The inside is all dark and gothic style, probably due to the original structure being a church. The Stage is a little small, but the bands I have seen made good used of it. The sound systems is great, the bars easy to access, but the only bathrooms are in the basement (there are two floors.)
  • I didn't think the acoustics were terrible in this building, considering the ceiling design. Staff were friendly but the drink prices are outrageous... $7 for a 12oz can of beer. What's with the guy in the bathroom turning on the water for you and putting soap on your hands? Just another way to make some money??
