Walk-Ins Only, Come By!

 With very rare exception, we operate on a first-come, first-served basis, with no advance ticket sales and no reservations. During performances, we pass the hat box once during each set, with a recommended donation of $10/person, all of which goes to the musicians.

Our format is pretty casual: grab some menus from the bartender, find a seat (or stand!) and order with us when you're ready. We don't have a server, but we try to check in at every opportunity, and ordering at the bar is usually best. If you're really looking forward to a show, especially for a bigger name or a weekend night, we'd recommend coming early. It's a small space, with more tables for pairs than for larger groups, but we have an excellent kitchen!
