Not the worst place to play, but the pay was very low when I played there a few years ago. The place isn't huge and there are some regulars, so if you bring a few heads in the door it can be a good night. Might be good for bands that don't draw huge and are willing to play for a little less.

I think we got only $300 for the band, maybe 400, I made less than $100. Other than the money it was fun. Also, they didn't have a PA, maybe, as the other review says, they have one now, I'd check that first.

This place is decorated with music memorabilia, has a designated stage area, and an in-house PA System. The place has customers coming in for the food menu until about 10 pm so there is an established clientele.
