Went to see an AC/DC Tribute Band. No cove (-: Band was super and drink prices were normal - not inflated.

Make sure you stop in and see John... Even though it always seems to be busy, he is attentive and makes all patrons feel welcome! Good job Purple Moose! Keep this man happy. He is an asset to your establishment.

This place isn't anything special, beer and drinks priced reasonably and it's has a great night club feel even 4 in the afternoon.

Great atmosphere. They have their own signature drinks the moose knuckles were slamming. Great staff, sat at the bar so the drinks were flowing fast.

My friends and I visited the Purple Moose twice. We tried once around dinner time but we didn't realize they don't serve food. And then we tried again later in the evening. It is definitely a fun place to go out to. The signature drinks...More

Went twice this past weekend to see the band. Here are our observations, in no particular order. First, although there are many security people, they don't do much. People swinging bottles and elbows around, at one point, striking the lead singer in the head. The...More

I saw a bunch of swirling frozen drink machines in the back of the bar. so I assume they are still made in bulk and served from a machine.
