This bohemian music venue opened in 2014 and aims to evoke the neighborhood’s famed music clubs of yore, such as the Cellar Door and Crazy Horse Saloon. The lineup focuses on Americana acts; the space also hosts occasional special events such as fundraisers and beer release parties, as well as a monthly Flashband concert showcasing local aspiring musicians. Husband-and-wife owners David and Karen Ensor emphasize a more comfortable concert experience: The venue offers plenty of seating, the music is never injuriously loud and the majority of shows are 21 and up. The menu will please vegetarians and locavores alike; dishes such as sunflower–hemp seed hummus and kale salad share space with Virginia ham sliders. The adjacent Vinyl Lounge is a haven for LP enthusiasts, who can relax in a booth while listening to albums played in their entirety and can even bring in their own to take for a spin.
