    The audience may turn on you if you talk during a set. Take your loud ass to another bar, this one is about MUSIC. Capeesh?

    Love the space. Get here early to grab a seat. The two theatre seats in the upstairs balcony are the best seats by far to see everything.

    If your bartender is a brunette named Ann, check out her band Mother Feather and tip her very well. She rocks and is a sweetie.

    Artists usually hang out in the side bar before they play-- if you want to rub elbows, enter through the door all the way to the left.

    A really great music venue! Sound is most balanced upstairs, so pour your drink in a plastic cup, and head on up!

    Samantha Kaplan · January 20, 2011
  • Roberto R.

    It's generally a bad idea to leave concert dates as tips, as time does elapse, surprisingly.
