We saw the Beaker Street Blues Band at Kimbro's and they were fantastic! Fun place for live music! We did not eat here as we arrived later and came for the music!

I didn't eat here, but I really enjoyed a night of music! This is one of the most unique places I have visited. I would visit if you have a chance!

When we went in to see Kimbro's, we paid a $10 cover charge for the bands that were lined up. You never know what type of music you will hear here but a place you need to visit. it's a small casual laid back environment...More
