With over four hundred types of whiskey, one hundred brands of beer, and a jam-packed roster of events every night of the week, Delilah’s keeps both the drinks and the DJ tracks flowing 365 days a year.
Once past the image of the evil queen out front, the collection of goth kids, leather-clad bikers, and even a few local preppies find themselves in a dimly-lit space decked out in eclectic local art, faded vinyl booths, and a few high tables and ripped stools where whiskey and beer lovers settle in for a few rounds.
On most nights, DJs spinning a mix of punk, reggae, and metal bring in a dedicated theme-seeking crowd, while movie screenings three nights a week and the monthly Mods vs. Rockers Motorcycle and Scooter gathering draw diverse crowds of film buffs, hipsters, and bikers.
A small room with its own bar on the second floor continues the local art theme, together with a pool table for the rockabillies to rack their balls on. Beer and whiskey tastings throughout the year are also hugely popular, as passionate fans flock in to sample the extensive selection.
A true neighborhood joint, Delilah’s is dedicated to well-curated drinks and a “Well, come on in” attitude.
