When visiting Savannah, you must take in its arts and entertainment! The city has something to offer for every taste in music. Your team at the Presidents’ Quarters Inn thought we’d make choosing a venue a little easier. Here’s a list of Savannah Music Venues you should know about:
Live Wire Music Hall
This is said to be the place for the “hippies of Savannah.” A variety of electronic, rock and jam bands perform at Live Wire Music Hall. Often said to have “the best stage in town,” Live Wire features live painters that create intricate paintings beside the stage that are inspired by the music. You can grab at drink at one of the two full bars or play some free Ping-Pong or darts if you get tired of dancing.
Lucas Theatre for the Arts
The Lucas Theatre’s future is assured by the support of the Savannah College of Art and Design. That allows for a wide range of community uses, as well as excellent entertainment like operas from London and Italy, European orchestras and country stars.
Martin Luther King Jr. Arena
You can watch wrestling, the Ringling Brothers Circus or Disney on Ice. The Martin Luther King Jr. Arena plays host to a wide range of events. It also serves as an exhibit space for conventions, large banquets and festivals.
Taco Abajo is an incredibly spacious venue with plenty of room for eating, dancing, foosball, pool or corn toss. There’s usually no cover at the Broughton Street bar and restaurant. This is a great venue for local musicians.
Vic’s on the River
Nightly live music is accompanied by picturesque views, a curated wine selection, and Southern cuisine of the highest quality and refinement. It can be found at 16 East River Street.
Congress Street Social Club
A local band is usually jamming inside Congress Street Social Club for free. It’s not made for dancing, but the specials are hard to beat. With $5 pitchers of Dos Equis, it’s more of a college hangout.
This venue prides itself on covering all kinds of music, including metal, square dancing, electronic and bluegrass. There’s plenty of room for dancing and couches for lounging. The Wormhole is more of a local hangout, which is located on Bull Street and 39th.
Ideal for punk rockers, metal heads and bikers, The Jinx has a small stage and floor that makes for an up-close and powerful experience. Musicians from all over flock to this bar on Congress Street.
Jazz’d Tapas Bar
Jazz’d features swinging tunes six nights a week. It is a sultry and sophisticated tapas bar in the heart of downtown Savannah. You can come early for happy hour or stay late and dance the night away.
Johnny Mercer Theatre
Home to numerous events like Broadway musicals, concerts, comedy shows, and professional ballets, the Johnny Mercer Theatre is located within the Savannah Civic Center.
After visiting your favorite venue or listening to one of your preferred acts, come home to your room at the Presidents’ Quarters Inn and relax. It is nestled in the heart of Savannah’s historic district on Oglethorpe Square, giving it an exclusive location that is only steps away from the city’s best sights and attractions.
