Apr 5, 2013A good place to go"I was at the Redwood for the gig of Carsick Cars, the Gar and White+, which was an amazing experience. Besides the bands that are the main reasons that I went to Redwood, the bar itself is a fascinating underground livehouse in every way.
It locates in the middle of no where in downtown, very deserted, giving a unique vibe to the bar and making parking never a problem. However, the surrounding neighborhood does not feel safe at all so I believe it is best you go with friends.
Inside the bar, it's pretty sizable with many booths and seats at the bar. But the stage is rather small and so does the circle pit (I don't think there is one considering that the standing area is narrow and small). On the bright side, you get the ultimate intimacy with the bands performing.
Foods there are normal American style (burgers and fries) with reasonable prices. We ordered burgers, nachos, and fries and the fries taste really good. Drinks are not expensive and I had lots of vodka.
Redwood is everything you would expect of a underground livehouse (at least it lives to my expectations) and I say you should go for the bands!"hide
