It doesn't get better than this!!! – I'm a pretty average guy, not much into the bar-hopping, or clubbing scene, but I stumbled upon a real gem when I happened into the Black Brimmer for the first time. My wife and I were out on our weekly Tuesday night date. We had missed the movie we wanted to see, and were just cruising and trying to find something else to do. (On a Tuesday night... yeah right!) We had pretty much given up and were headed home when we rode by the Black Brimmer... Live music on a Tuesday night??? Why not. We stopped in. The place was comfortably crowded, had beautiful antique victorian style decor, dance floor, sports on t.v. friendly atmosphere. The Band was good, but the lead singer.... No wonder they were playing on a Tuesday... We went in and sat at a table in the back, The waitress was quick and pleasant. After the first song ended the "problem" with the lead singer was explained...
An M.C. got on the stage and invited the next Karaoke participant onto the stage... This was the first time I had ever seen a Live Band play for karaoke. The band is REALLY tallented, and the singers... there is some talent there, but everyone has a good time, and everyone is positive and encouraging. We hung out for a while, even got brave enough to get up and make some noise. We have been back several times, Tuesday night is our favorite, (if you show up we'll sing for you... or you can sing for us!) But the place is really happening later in the week, The music is always good, and the atmosphere is friendly if your 21, or 71. If you do decide to check it out, make sure you get to all 3 levels, and try their Beef Nacho's (Biggest, Best Nacho's I've ever had, and under 10 bucks) but bring friends, there's enough to feed about 4 people. Oh yeah, early in the evening the Black Brimmer is a FANTASTIC family resteraunt, My kids have chosen it over fast food!
Check it out...Great music, Great food, Great atmosphere, can't go wrong.
Dark, Crowded, and Smelly – Seriously, I DON'T like this place. I don't know why there are even people there. It smells, it's mediocre, takes forever to get a drink, it's too crowded, and it's overplayed.
Seriously, an $8 cover in Manchester, NH? It's not Boston, despite the attitude of the people at the door. Take you $8 and head down the street to one of the new pubs by the Verizon center. That'll pay for a beer and then some at any of those fine places! :)
