GREAT Venue for a Bridal Shower – Mr. Bill Hoover (manager/owner I believe) is the NICEST, BEST person to work with ever. I asked him to rent his venue for a bridal shower during the day on a Saturday (when there weren't any acts playing) and he gave me a great price (WAY better than Churchill Downs or Apache Cafe, btw) and included a beautiful, delicious spread of food. He also let us decorate, play on his stage, and use his sound system- it was a perfect day for our bride! I can't recommend his venue enough- thank you again!

The name may say stop, but for Americana music fans, this little music cafe is the place to go. – The Scene
Hidden amongst warehouse outlets on Amsterdam Avenue, Red Light Cafe caters mainly to acoustic bluegrass and country musicians. High ceilings and red brick form a fitting backdrop for local artwork and bare white canvasses. The spartan atmosphere ensures that nothing will detract from the music, which is played at ear-shattering decibels. If you've come here to talk, you won't hear a word. Weekends, the joint is packed with music aficionados who descend upon the chairs and tables assembled around the stage like hungry wolves.

The Draw
A melange of older bearded men and young urbanites with oxford shirts call this friendly music club a favorite. There are the occasional free spirits in the mood for love and women out to enjoy good old country and bluegrass with their girlfriends.

Never going there again!!! – I've been there twice and had a terrible experience both times. Here's a summation: No liquor, they over sell their tiny venue, you can't just walk up to the bar and order a beer, you have to wait in a 20 minute line, it was so crowded that you couldn't even scratch your own butt, they came on over the PA saying to leave the aisle clear for the waitress because she was pregnant, who the hell staffs their bar with a pregnant waitress anyway!?!?! I'm done with the redlight.
