Every now and then I come to this place to have a nice evening while hearing to some good music. Forget about the food or the smokers, that can kind of ruin the mood, and just focus on the music and your glass of beer...More

Looking for a nice place for a drink and we happened upon Birmam's. Wow! Full bar, friendly, good service. And, live music. Piano, accordian, guitar, you name it. What a terrific way to unwind from a hard day of sightseeing.

Gotta love this restaurant/cafe. Lovely + lively live music with an accordion, flute, and guitar all jamming together! Loved the little chess tables on the side and the outdoor seating in the alley as well. The food isn't cheap but not too expensive either and...More
