This bar is great for live music. You get to meet the musicians and can almost touch them on the stage. Bootleggers has some class acts and good beer too.

We enjoyed our visit to this bar. They seem to have a large selection of live bands on, mostly rock which I appreciated. The bar was comfortable and I loved the real fire on a cold February night.
