Used to be awesome until Ziggy died and new management took over. Same name but culture and location changed, now it's more jazz like a suburban bar and grill with corn-hole on the patio. C-
Great little record shop! And it's all due to Chaz being such a great host. Platters galore!
Great selection, and Chaz's knowledge of music is unsurpassed. He makes incredible recommendations based on what you like. He hasn't missed a recommendation yet for me.
I've seen more great music and musicians at Billsborough Music Hall in the last couple months than I have the previous 20 years. The musical diversity is amazing and will please everyone. Our favorite is Jazz Night on Wednesday's. DEM Guys is GOOOD!. The bar staff is friendly with great selections. They keep you coming back with a smile!
We recently played Bill West's Billsborough and had a heck of a good time. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, the choices of beverages was excellent, and the locals were warm and appreciative. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. I suspect it's not a well kept secret that Bill knows the biz from years of performing and knows how to treat his staff, clientèle, and entertainers. The room has such a great vibe to it. The remodeling he's done really enhances it. We can't wait to get back.
Beautiful inside, great beer specials, perfect acoustics, awesome staff, and a homey feel. Plus they book acts you're not going to see anywhere else in the area, such as Charlie Hunter.
I've been waiting for a music hall in Hillsborough, and Bill doesn't disappoint! Billsborough offers the best music and bar tenders in town, as well as a growing selection of drinks and an inviting and homey atmosphere. I love this place and am proud to call myself a regular. :)
I played recently at Billsborough Music Hall and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great music environment that's "dog friendly" and listener friendly. Bill West, the owner, really treats his audience and the musicians who perform there with respect. He's got a beautiful huge Newfoundland dog, Moose, who really made a big impression when Scott Sawyer and I played there. Can't wait to play at Billsborough again!
Billsborough is a great intimate live music venue, where the music is supreme. The people love it, cause Bill is the consumate host that knows how to show you a great time. The artists Love it cause they know Bill is a highly skilled singer/songwriter, (Artist) that knows the struggle. His experience playing and entertaining go hand in hand with his warm personality. This Brother exudes Love. The place is dog friendly too. I have played there and had many a dog to come up on the stage and hang out with the band'. - ) Not to mention a hand picked staff of great people and a fine selection of refreshments. In a nutshell, 6 words, "If you go, you will know".
I love music, but dislike big concerts. I'm more of a hang-in-the-garage-while-the-band-practices kind of gal and Billsborough is right up my alley! Cozy ambiance with great service! There is even a designated dance floor and an alcove for darts. Womens restroom was FABULOUS--cleanest (and nicest) venue bathroom ever! Looking forward to being able to visit again.
An awesome venue.So glad someone opened up the old Blue Bayou. It's very friendly and the music is outstanding.Don't forget that it is also dog friendly.
Owner Bill West is doing all the right things to make this small venue an important one for his audiences and musicians alike. He's booking quality local music acts as well as regional and national name artists on tour. He's varying the musical genres that are offered. He's trying to make Billsborough a place unique to the Hillsborough and Orange County.
I came here once visiting from Chicago and I wish I could take this venue with me. I had a great time listening to open mic players and the owner Bill is my personal hero.
Low key, friendly, diverse music, and a big dog! All the keys to a great neighborhood bar.
