Shattuck Stage Shows

Our philosophy of combining Craft Beer with Craft Music lead us to design a smaller stage in our restaurant & Beer Garden.  Our Shattuck stage has a JBL Soundcraft SiPerformer system and is the perfect venue for local upcoming acts.  Whether it is a jazz trio, a solo guitarist, comedy or poetry reading, our sound and lighting system provides a memorable experience in a comfortable dining setting.  If you are a local musician, please contact us, we would love to have you perform on our Shattuck stage.

Fun & Games

When we aren’t hosting private events or live music shows our main room turns into a game room.  Guests can enjoy Ping-Pong, Corn Hole and Giant Janga.
