Since opening in 1957, this renowned live music club has helped launched the careers of some of rock’s most famous names, from Elton John and James Taylor to Guns N’ Roses and Metallica. The intimate, wood-paneled space remains a respected venue for catching contemporary singer-songwriters, emerging bands, and the occasional surprise show or two (Prince has been known to pop in). Even the small front bar is the stuff of legend: The Eagles’ Don Henley and Glenn Frey first met here and later wrote the song “Sad Café” inspired by it.
