• The Chicken is back every month.

    Special national acts are storming through the door to play in our intimate space. We now take reservations and do advance ticket sales. Your favorite local musicians are still on the schedule, and The Static Chicken and Extra Crispy Brass Band have regular nights every month. Tell all your people and get your ass on a stool soon.

  • Thank you ma’am, may I have another?

    The Estate is continuing a long tradition of quality libations. Stop in to try a craft cocktail or to grab three fingers of your favorite distillation. Always poured the way you want it.

  • Happy Hours, Tuesday – Saturday

    It’s Drinking Season, it gets dark early, and the barbecue is hibernating. Your liver is telling you to take your B vitamins and drink more booze. We are doing our part — we’re open for happy hour, or Hora Feliz if you are in a mezcal frame of mind… The lights turn on and the music starts at 5:00pm Tuesday – Saturday.

  • Hot Sauce @ the Estate!

    The Estate’s calendar is filling up with amazing acts! Click here to check out a complete list of dates! A sortable calendar is at your fingertips — hell, you can even subscribe to it. Tuesday nights are featuring FUTUREPORN. Recent national acts have included Charlie Hunter and Scott Amendola, The Greyhounds, and Hermon Mehari. Bigger shows will often allow you to buy tickets online.
