Engine Room

I've never been to the Engine Room, but I like the way it looks on the outside.

Be careful, it will probably be hot and loud.

The walls are fantastic! Let us know if you ever make it inside :D

The last time I was there it was pre-Beta Bar days.

Now you have to go inside to let us know what goes on in there.

I have loved looking at your fishy adventures with your grandson. He sure seemed to enjoy all the see critters. MB

Is this where you go to get "tanked"?
;-D

The program seems "interesting" to me.

Halcyon said...

Cool! What is it? A resto?

jennyfreckles said...

They have some odd-sounding bands on! And why can't you wear high heels there?

Lois said...

I was wondering about the high heels too! Maybe they have some kind of special flooring. That's a good question!

This looks like one of those places that doesn't really start buzzing until 2 AM and has a great big bouncer at the door to make sure only the "right" people get in.

Perhaps, to allay our suspicions, you ought to pay the place a visit and make a report? ;-)

VP said...

Thanks for the link, I didn't know what to expect from a sign like this...

Q Smith said...

Yes, a report would seem essential at this point! :P

Lucy the Cat said...

It sure looks bright and cheerful on the outside!

I like the candy colours. What is behind it?

The fancy logo is at odds with the down-to-earth aspects of the building itself. It is interesting that the fence looks meant to keep cattle under control!!

The Engine Room? A fantastic name!

Clytie said...

I agree - what a fantastic name!!!

Lisa Wilson said...

I wonder what's inside?

As someone who's been there constantly, it used to be a dive (an endearing one, at that) but the new owner's cleaned things up quite a bit. They've hosted a wide variety of concerts, usually featuring local acts and sometimes burgeoning bands on a national and international level covering any genre of music you can think of (and even genres you might not be aware of). I've seen reggae, country, funk, dream-pop, electronic and punk acts there. They also have dance nights as well. Most events cater to the non-frat/non-sorority collegiate crowds, but there are exceptions. The inside has nice bars and tables and your choice of over 200 beers. On dance nights, they tend to have a DJ outside on the deck and another indoors on the stage and on those days they DO tend to be really happening right before the venue closes at 2 AM.

The Friday Limelight in the Democrat has listings and descriptions of their upcoming shows as well as happenings at other venues, and lately they've been covering those more diligently so it's easy to find out what's happening. They tend to have something for everyone's taste!

By the way, to the person that asked about the high heels, someone broke one of their heels on the dance floor and injured herself, then tried to get litigation-happy, hence the policy.
