This venue hosts a variety of forms of music, ranging from indie-rock, electronic, experimental and jazz. This venue opened by Bruce Finkelman in 1992 was originally a simple neighborhood bar. In 1993 the club moved to its current location, two blocks from its original location. The venue also owns a connected restaurant next door called Bite.
