The tavern entertainment is varied for different audiences and occasions. You will find a balance of participatory events such as OPEN MIC and Karaoke and local and regional bands to national recording artists.

In the off-season we will book more solo artists and small ensembles including acoustics and jazz. Band genre is listed on the website or identified when you link to the entertainers’ web sites.

Age 21 with proper ID is standard for the Tavern. We will allow a small percentage of 18+ in the Tavern as accompanied by someone age 21 or older. All patrons under 21 years of age must provide their ID, have their hands marked and wear a bracelet. We reserve the right not to return an ID to those found removing the bracelet, washing the mark from their hands, or consuming alcohol provided by another party.
