    Nice live music, different bands everyday, diverse crowd, great atmosphere on a Saturday night, shame for not allowing vaping but you can do it anyway when closer to the stage. Will come back here!

    This chitlin’ circuit gets rowdier than Parchman Farm, so get in early to avoid the line – otherwise, the only blues you’ll be seeing are frostbitten fingers from standing out in the blistering cold. Read more

    A sweaty little bar with live music every night. With murals of BB King and Buddy Guy, honkytonk piano with slide guitars, and Amy Winehouse slumped in the corner trying to remember her middle name. Read more

    A decent spot if you're after a late night drink or some live music. Can get jam packed though and unpleasant at peak times (like a lot of bars though)

    Uncomfortably overcrowded, ridiculously overpriced, terrible drink selection (only the stuff that people ask to get wasted). Jams were meh. I probably happened to be there on the wrong night though...
