    Cafe Nine is a lively offbeat hangout that puts on shows every single night. Check the schedule and try to catch one of their wild burlesque or Show Devils "freak show" acts (click on link for pics). Read more

    Great staff, wonderful renovations make this place a joy to see touring bands or local singer/songwriters.

    Cozy atmosphere, but staff didn't especially make me feel welcome. Also, unlike most bars, here they charge you even if you're in before the cover -- don't arrive early expecting to be grandfathered.

    Far from the main strip, highway right outside the door—this is a bar thatdefines "off the beaten path." Order something clean and simple. Bask inanonymity.

    No beer garden, just a bar with (today) live music. So today, it's doomed.
