Turn off the Misfits, Arcade Fire or whatnot and go to Empire's Honky Tonk night every other Tuesday. Real music, real people, great DJ!

This renovated 1200-person capacity music hall has hosted everyone from the Beatles to, well, The National. It’s ornate and simple, balconied with a graded dancefloor. Bands love this place for its AMAZING backstage (hot tub/basketball court/VIP bars).
