    Great acoustics, full bar, has a kitchen. The staff is super nice (you should tip them well.) Only downside is the ladies' rest room is so close to the bands' "green room."

    Really great music venue that hosts an ecclectic taste in music. Too bad it's all the way out in Vienna and closes around midnigt (at least on weekdays, I think). Read more

    I love this music venue. With a max capacity of 200 there isn't a bad spot in the place to enjoy national and local acts. With a great staff & all around atmosphere you can't go wrong at Jammin Java.

    The VIP seats aren't very close to the stage, so you are better off standing in GA unless you really need to sit.
