Pack a big punch in this small concert room tucked behind a popular bar. Play it right and you’ll sell the room out to a mix of devoted fans and ordinary bar patrons who hear you rocking through the side door. A barely elevated stage and minimal barstool seating keep it simple.

The Hemlock Tavern’s music/performance room is physically separate and relatively soundproof from the main bar. While it’s free to get into the bar itself, a cover is charged to enter the music room.

Do not send anything via US Mail or drop off any demos at the bar unless asked to do so! Instead, please send an email inquiry with the band/act name in the subject line to: tony [at] hemlocktavern.com

The Hemlock is typically booking 2-3 months in advance.
