    Good music. Great acoustics. Intimate setting for live music. Really crowded, though. You have to crawl over people to get to the bar on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't judge a bar by its cover (free or cheap). Great live music!

    Came in on a random night and ran into Guy Forsyth. Incredibly talented group with a unique sound. Absolutely worth the cover.

    If you're hungry for food, Saxon Pub has order in menus from surrounding restaurants. If you're hungry for the limelight, send in a demo of your band on their website; they'll actually listen to it!
