Neat small place to have some wine and alight bite and listen to music. Relaxing, not too expensive and just a pleasure to come. Most of the entertainment is during the week. Prices are okay and decent service

Hit this spot on a Tuesday evening and had a glass of wine and listened to some local musicians. Relaxed spot with a local crowd. If you are so inclined, they have an open mic so you can let your inner entertainer come forward.
