Just a great small venue to see a concert. 8 rows of seats. Three beers on tap to choose from. Easy to get to. Just like the artist was in your living room.

We saw Garland Jefferys, Jonathan Edwards and Marshall Crenshaw. Great concert - they have a small bar that is opened at the beginning of the show and during intermission. They have a wide range of concerts - check it out!

We bought tickets to see a monthly jazz concert at One Longfellow. I think for both tickets I paid $10. I had no idea what it was or what the venue was, but figured it might be a nice thing to do on vacation. The...More
