Cool space with a cool stage-within-a-stage. Lots of places to hang - pool tables and another bar upstairs, which has its own stage and rents separately.

I used to do a weekly show here, but supposedly management made unfair demands of the organizers. This is secondhand and unconfirmed.

The upstairs room sounded pretty good.

I've played the bigger, downstairs room, too. I've had really bad luck with the sound there. Not sure how much of that is the space and how much of that is the techs, who, though totally nice, seemed like the kinds of engineers that don't handle non-rock bands well.
