JJ’s Grill

At JJ’s Grill, you’ll come for the free live music and stay for the bustling energy & tasty pub chain offerings.

Wash it all down with a bucket of your favorite domestic beer!

The Music Depot

At the newly-renovated Music Depot downtown, Black Roots Music is celebrated and taught through live shows, festivals, and educational workshops. Reserve a table and cozy up right next to the stage in the elegant, intimate music hall while you enjoy jazz, R&B, hip hop, classic rock, funk, gospel, blues, and the occasional live DJ. Head into the hall’s Vault Bar for a glass of wine or a cocktail while you savor the music, or get hands-on at a fun event like their monthly Sip and Paint parties.

Good Vibrations

Let the good times roll at Good Vibrations. This local favorite dive bar (and we mean that in the most awesome way) serves up live music weekly, games and budget-friendly drinks. Play pool while local bands rock the stage, or chill at the bar and watch the big game on the flat screens.

Or, drop in during karaoke night and show off your vocal skills (or lack of).

Boar’s Nest

Laid-back vibes and quality entertainment are what you’ll find at this award-winning modern pub! Groove to live music from local bands, test your aim at the dart boards, or shoot pool with your pals.

The Piano Bar & Grill

Throwback a cocktail and experience the electric energy of dueling pianos nightly at The Piano Bar & Grill! Dig into delicious grub like Southwest Style Egg Rolls or a juicy, ⅓ pound cheeseburger from the kitchen while you watch the talented musicians on stage remix Billy Joel hits, show tunes, and the latest releases.
