Live Music Cider Sessions

 

Kick back and enjoy live music while you relax with a cider on our patio. Featuring a variety of musical genres, we are proud to create a space to enjoy and support local musicians through nightly Cider Sessions. 

 

Relax. Enjoy. Tap Your Toe

With a focus on quiet(er) background music, we are excited to feature a wide variety of local artists this summer.  No tickets or cover charge required, just reserve your table for dinner and enjoy.  We do recommend you bring some cash to tip the artists – they’ve had a rough year and could use all of our support.

You must also reserve for 6:00 seating or later if you intend to stay for the music.

Keeping with current Public Health Orders, tables larger than 6 cannot be booked and you must remain seated at your table. Food & Beverages must be purchased as it is a dinner reservation and not a concert event.
