My husband and I went to Nectar's to get a t-shirt for my son, who is a huge Phish fan (Phish got their start here). We were at Nectars early in the evening, before the night's live music had begun, so there were few customers...More

Nectar's denied my daughter entry to a music performance last night. Because she has scoliosis, they looked at her and concluded she was drunk. They refused her admissions to the performance solely on that basis. Disgusting, discriminatory, and unlawful.

My wife and I and another couple went out to grab a late bite to eat and found nectars, the food and service was excellent and the live music was very enjoyable. The atmosphere was paid back and comfortable.
