EMPIRE CONTROL ROOM & GARAGE Officially proclaimed a Cultural District, the packed three city blocks will introduce you to ribs that stick to your ribs and music that settles into your soul. MUSIC SCENE: The perfect road to wander down when you’re waiting for something to catch your ear and draw you in, this official entertainment district offers live tunes every night of the week. CHEER UP CHARLIES: Drop inside this LGBTQ-friendly spot for a live show, a stiff sip and a toast on the patio covered in a huge pink canopy. BARRACUDA: Three reasons to go: second Saturday sock hops, record release parties and a vintage photo booth. EMPIRE CONTROL ROOM & GARAGE: Come for live performances on three stages and magical Mondays showcasing local talent. STUBB’S BBQ: One of the top live music venues in town, come here to clap your hands to the beat and stay to lick the bbq sauce off your fingers during Sunday gospel brunch. CB’S LOUNGE: This VIP live music lounge offers a great view of the Waller Creek Amphitheater. MOHAWK: From root beer-flavored whiskey to BYOVinyl happy hour, you’re always in for a treat at this long-standing live music venue. TRUE BLUE TATTOO: Get a permanent souvenir at this wellkept joint that’s been inking since ‘92. KORIENTE: Pop in for Asian fusion fare and refreshing sips like cinnamon iced tea. THE SIDEWINDER: A live music venue run by musicians for musicians. HOBOKEN PIE: Say Salut! With a slice (or 10) from this gourmet dough shop. Sure you can have your pepperoni here, but have you ever tried toppings like vegan tofu ricotta? BARBARELLA: Wear your dancing shoes and bring your best moves to Barbarella for “grits & gravy,” a classic soul and rock n’ roll dance party on Thursdays.
