Preservation Pub 1Description: Preservation Pub is a, mid-size, 21-and-up music venue, and restaurant/bar, with a capacity of 400 people. It was voted “Top 10 Best Pubs” by USA Today, and it’s easy to see why. Preservation Pub is loved by local music fans and tourists alike, an occurrence that can be hard to come by in the world of music. Often times, a music venue is either a local attraction, or a tourist attraction, but not both. Preservation Pub is a refreshing combination of the two, which speaks to its world class status as a music venue. The best part, by far, is the fact that they have live music EVERY SINGLE night. Not only that, there is often more than one performance every evening by local, and touring, musicians for a total of, about, 200 musical performances per month. This alone puts Preservation Pub close to the top of Who’s the Band’s favorite music venues, something that we hope everyone who is graced by a night here can agree with.
