The place to go for music outside the mainstream

The Empty Bottle is a great venue for bands and musicians you will probably never ever hear on mainstream radio (and I mean that as a compliment!). The club has a very intimate feel, and the smokiness & sketchiness of the interior and exterior give it character. The main drawback is that the bar is right near the stage, and the conversation from the bar area can get really noisy, which makes it difficult to truly enjoy the quieter acts.

great place for a show

Empty Bottle is a very cozy place, a dive bar with chic. The immediate stage area is small and intimate, but also perfectly visible from the bar if you don't want to get right up front. Cheap drinks are also a nice plus (a shot and 2 beers was 10 bucks)

Had a great time

I've only been there once, but would definitely recommend this place. There is an above average selection of beers, and the prices are very reasonable, especially if you're low on cash- $1.50 PBR's, etc. The place is definitely a dive, but when the band plays and you're sucking back cheap beer, you just don't care. One tip, know exactly where you're going when you go to this place. I don't think there is a sign that says 'Empty Bottle', so it's very possible to get confused.

The Rock Stops Here!

My favorite place for music.. Bar none. I might be jaded, but it's true.

Up Close

If you wanted to be within 6 inches of the band... this is the place to go. Everytime I've seen a band here - I've been able to talk to them before and after the show. Very personable place
