Jackie says: Project Barley is first and foremost a craft beer brewery, but it’s roots are in music – Partner Brent Reger plays in local band, Barley. The partners’ plan revolved around live music, hand-making small batch beer, and focusing on keeping it local and in the tap room. PB features a variety of bands Thursday through Sunday and has quickly become a hangout for local musicians, so you never know who may sit in for a tune or two.

Jackie says: Primo Italia is known throughout the South Bay for fine Italian cuisine, but did you know you can also pop in for live music every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night? Think supper club, think the Great American Song Book, think nightcap, think date night, think Primo!

Jackie says: In addition to having pretty much every beer in the world, Naja’s also offers live music every Friday night, Saturday afternoon, Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Naja’s is the ultimate harbor dive bar – it’s a fairly raucous scene and the acoustics leave much to be desired… but it’s a completely unique South Bay institution, adored by all and a favorite stop during a Strand Cruise!
