This is a unique venue. Eclectic music lovers will love this place. It's not on the beaten track but it's worth finding! The owners really know their music and book fun bands with a great vibe. BYOB.
Finally had a chance to visit Bill's new club - FANTASTIC! In addition to the wonderful hospitality Bill and his crew give to every patron who comes through the door, the place is killer cool! Windows 360 around with some huge sky lights, great open space to enjoy music, a nice lounge area, separate pool table room toward the back, amazing patio area outside, and plenty of space at the bar. Great place to enjoy an evening and I can't wait to gig there too!
To me, the most impressive thing about Plan B is the atmosphere and friendliness. The staff, and in my experience the clientele too, go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The acoustics are good, and every band I've seen play here was excellent; I'd never heard any of them before, and that implies that the bookings has a finger on the pulse of the grass roots music scene of the Triangle like no-one else. Want to see one of the best bands you've never heard of? Come here on a whim. Add to that known local favorites as well and this is a great venue. And if all you feel like is a beer or two and to hang out with friendly people (and dogs), this is a fine place for that too.
Awesome live music venue!
Comfortable venue. Music great !
Love, love, love this place--Shakori Hills Community Arts Center is an outdoor venue that does not otherwise exist in Chatham County or the surrounding area. Its a lovely country setting on an Old Farmstead that could have easily been swallowed by development. The beautiful 72 acres are a mixture of rolling meadows and forests and are home to some magnificent old oak trees, historic farm buildings, and a community garden. Great place to convene with nature and your friends, especially when live music is involved! And camping!
Chaz is great! If he doesn't have it, he'll get it for you! Shopped there for years! You can't go wrong!
I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!
The Joyful Jewel is one of two amazing art galleries in historic downtown Pittsboro, NC. Other venues in town also have art on display for for sale, Blue Dot Coffee, Angelina's Kitchen, and the Pittsboro Roadhouse's General Store, but that is not their primary business. The Joyful Jewel and Liquidamber are both in the block just north of Courthouse Circle, where most of, but not all of, the town's cool stores are. Though there are two art galleries, each is decidedly unique. Both carry items for under $5 and over $500 and every range in between.
The Joyful Jewel is owned by Mariah Wheeler, a versatile artist who works with fused glass, metals and beads creating unique necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants. She is also a mentor to a number of artists, and a keen supporter of the arts. The Joyful Jewel features over 160 artists from North Carolina. Photography. Pottery. Sculpture. Woodwork. Paintings. Poetry and other books by local authors. Stained Glass. Unique clothing. Art from recycled items.
For any who love to have unique and original work. For any who love color and variety, the Joyful Jewel is one of the must-visit stores of the greater Triangle area of North Carolina.
I've been in the restaurant industry for 17 years, working at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and after dining at Chef's Palette their service and hospitality exceeded my expectations. The Chicken Francese was totally delicious! Great place.
About Sharp Nine: Durham, NC has another "major, extraordinary" thing now that brings a date night or a family night the flavor of New Orleans, DC, NYC! Do not let Sharp Nine Gallery go another week without you checking it out! This intimate, wonderful music spot, reminds me of Snug Harbor in NOLA. Btw, You can buy a glass of wine or bottled water or BYOB. Every seat in the small house is hot!
Nice place to hear old country music and original songwriting. Eric Strickland always puts on a good show there. In addition; you can bring your kids along. kid 12 and under were free. Come on out and give this family friendly venue a try.
love the food and the service!
Great little record shop! And it's all due to Chaz being such a great host. Platters galore!
Delicious food, attentive service and charming decor. I recommend the salads as entrees, wine & bread with olive oil. The country store has lots of artistic merchandise. We had a fun time.
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 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!
