The Tap Room is just a little "hole in the wall" bar but the sounds coming out of the place drew us in. FABULOUS blues music being sung the way the blues is meant to be sung! Big Don Valentine is an amazing singer &...More

Music was good. The crown and Ginger was expensive but I wasn't in the mood for the $5 beer. I liked the mug display. We will walk to another bar. It's located well since we only have a couple of hours.
