Nothing beats a night out with live music in a great atmosphere.  Everyone loves a concert in a big venue with big name band, but there are many smaller local venues that serve up cold drinks and great music in a smaller setting.  We put together a list of great spots around town to find a great night of music and a fun date night out!

  • Hofbrauhaus – Hofbrauhaus has live entertainment 6 nights a week made up of local talent. Great food and good music, doesn’t get much better than that.
