Always a good time

Been coming here for about 3 years. Nice variety of music - they pull in great talent. Sound system is great - loud enough to hear, but not so loud you need ear plugs. Good... read more

Went out for a bachelorette party and manager was rude to multiple people in our party. Pushing people because you do not feel they are moving fast enough is not appropriate, nor is yelling at patrons. Stating "you should just leave if you aren't happy" is not generally accepted in the service industry, however this was said to our party.... More

We went to Tressa's to see a friend perform. They had continuous music from 7:00 pm until 1:00 am. The two bands I saw play were awesome. Tressa's is a small venue but it very cool. You can tell the interior was decorated back in the 40's and it still looks that way with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. If... More

We accidentally stumbled along Broadway and found Tressa's-. Enjoyed the funky sounds of a band called FreeFlow; what a diverse crowd grooving together on the dance floor.

My wife, daughter and I had a lovely time at Tressa's. It's an old building and decorated in a "Speakeasy" kind of motif. We saw a great swing /blues band called Virginia and the Slims. They had some interesting specialty drinks which my wife and daughter enjoyed but I can't vouch for first-hand. Interesting mixed crowd of Black and White,... More

I've been several times with friends. A great place, very small though and is always crowded. They always have very talented and entertaining bands on the weekends. Their chocolate martini is delicious and reasonably priced. We will visit again when we are back in the area.

Music didn't start until 9 o clock but they were fantastic. We had a blast listening to the music and dancing. Good crowd and good drinks with reasonable prices. It is going to be a sure stop on every trip.

We were slowly wandering around downtown Asheville looking for our next stop when we walked by the front door of Tressa's. I heard some really good guitar/harp blues coming from inside so we decided to stop in. Glad we did. A reasonable cover at the door and we grabbed seats along the wall near the stage. The decor is classic... More
