Celebrating the return of
live music and good company

Our summer Mainstage series kicks off May 27th, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. With a wide array of diverse and talented acts, with thirty degree days and not a cloud in the sky, with your kids doing great in school and your back finally not aching and your house up $100k since April, with the sweet, sweet Bandit and the naughty Whoa Nellie back on our shelves, we think summer 2021 is shaping up to let the good times roll once again. 

Keeping with current Public Health Orders, tables larger than 6 cannot be booked and you must remain seated at your table.
