Great band; fun people; room for dancing; highly recommended. We use the back entrance off the alley to avoid the front door lines.

We just happened in while a wonderful bluegrass band was playing. At first there were not many patrons. The band accepted requests and were authentic. Within minutes there were no empty seats. We really enjoyed our visit.
