Music Venue
“They have consistent house music parties here, but I love Afternoon Bliss—it’s the first Sunday morning of every month, and it's got a pretty good following. It’s on their back patio so you can just kind of hang out in the sunshine, have a drink, and spend your afternoon listening to some house music. The people in the crowd haven’t necessarily been out all weekend, they come here just for this party, so it’s a more low key scene.”
