  • Big acts have played here and we saw Joe Purdy backed by Lia Rose. Great night of folk in a small club. Food truck park just down the road too....Joe was great and Lia sang amazingly  more »
  • Great sound, I bought dinner with the show and it was pretty good food. The only criticism I have is the balcony where dinner guests are, the sound is so much better on the floor. Adding a couple of smaller speakers on time delay near the balcony would make it fantastic.
  • Always a great place to catch a good act. The all-floor setup really makes for a great music experience regardless of where you are. The only spot that is really a hazard is nearest the front door as there are stairs which you can fall from if it's standing room only and you have no means to brace yourself.
