JOE’S GREAT AMERICAN BAR AND GRILL

Joe's Bar

Neighborhood bar with an emphasis on live music, including roots, blues, swinging jazz, country, Americana.

Monday is the best night, with Lorenzo’s “Happy Feet Monday” with some of the best gypsy jazz bands and Bal dancers around. Always plenty of people to dance with. This is where I go dancing on Monday nights. Not to be missed!

Occasionally danceable bands play on other nights, and I’ll list them on the Lindy calendar.

Free parking, mid-size dance floor, food til 10pm. Admission is free but there is a 2 drink / $6 minimum plus donation to band. Please abide by this and buy something in order to keep live Swing music happening here!

    Hi. been hanging out to visit you since we found out about your bar and grill last year (coming from Australia) however I can’t find out anything about your Rockin’ Thursdays and and Swingin’ Tuesdays, etc. on your website now – have you stopped these events, please tell me it isn’t so.
    Many thanks, Karen

    • Hi Karen,

      Joe’s still has some swing-danceable bands on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Usually ,ore rockabilly. Monday is the big night for Balboa and Lindy though.
