Described by musicians as "the Carnegie Hall of Bluegrass," this no-frills, dimly lit dive bar features a weekly Bluegrass Jam every Sunday night and hosts some of the city's best talent like The Time Jumpers and Jim Lauderdale. With a 40-year history as a low-key music mecca, it's worth a trip, even for skeptics: Watching bluegrass masters like Gillian Welch perform from a few yards away makes it easy to appreciate the skill of the craft, even if it's not your preferred musical genre. With a bare-bones menu of pizza, nachos, and hot dogs, the draw here is cheap beer and great tunes, so those hoping to toss back a craft cocktail or indulge a picky palate should look elsewhere.
