A solid roster of entertainment ranging from comedy nights and rock performances to acoustic jazz makes Quenchers Saloon a hot ticket for a diverse mix of patrons – and its immense selection of over three hundred beers doesn’t hurt either.
Two long and weathered wooden bars give the space a distinct lodge feel, accented by a fake deer head mounted between floor-to-ceiling shelves of liquor.
Simple tables frame the outskirts of the main room, leaving the rest of the space open for the blue-collar regulars, outgoing grad students, and occasional hipster to mingle and chat about the shows, or zigzag between the photo booth, retro jukebox, and free popcorn machine.
Dozens of chalkboards draw laid-back beer lovers intent on reading the handwritten details of their favorite brews or on scanning the massive calendar of monthly events, while just through the curtains in the back is the rustic stage room, home to regular indie rock, jazz, and reggae acts, as well as fundraising events, private parties, and Open Mic nights.
Offering everything from jazz and Leffe ale to indie bands and PBR, Quenchers Saloon is guaranteed to satisfy everyone’s thirst.
Varies by event, but mostly blue-collar regulars, chatty grad students, and music lovers, mid-20s to late 30s.
