I went to hear Jesse Barry at the invitation of her mother and was unaware of the $3 cover charge. The guy at the door who claimed to be the owner refused to allow me entry because I had no cash...only credit cards. He then...More

Laid back atmosphere, the bad was good, and so was the drinks. The owners seemed very nice. We plan to come back.

Went out for a bachelorette party and manager was rude to multiple people in our party. Pushing people because you do not feel they are moving fast enough is not appropriate, nor is yelling at patrons. Stating "you should just leave if you aren't happy"...More

We accidentally stumbled along Broadway and found Tressa's-. Enjoyed the funky sounds of a band called FreeFlow; what a diverse crowd grooving together on the dance floor.

My wife, daughter and I had a lovely time at Tressa's. It's an old building and decorated in a "Speakeasy" kind of motif. We saw a great swing /blues band called Virginia and the Slims. They had some interesting specialty drinks which my wife and...More

I've been several times with friends. A great place, very small though and is always crowded. They always have very talented and entertaining bands on the weekends. Their chocolate martini is delicious and reasonably priced. We will visit again when we are back in the...More
