The Knitting Factory offers live concerts in a variety of genres in an intimate venue, where you get a great view of the stage from every vantage point. It’s normally all-ages, but those over 21 can take advantage of the multiple bars both upstairs and down, so there’s rarely a wait. We highly recommend getting VIP tickets if you can swing it, because nothing beats the birds eye view of the box seats and the convenience of personalized service.

Famous for its 102 expertly crafted martinis and extensive selection of 350 wines, Roxy’s Bar and Lounge features nightly live music, winning Best Lounge Act multiple times in Best of Reno polls. The award-winning act of live piano with vocal performances rouses the room before 9:00pm, which is when it switches over to a DJ and the party gets popping. Snag a seat in the 1950s glamour-inspired bar area for the best sound from the piano or trio.
