Places for Live Music in Athens

Picture a typical night out at Ohio University. Maybe you're getting ready with your friends, having a few drinks, and listening to the Top Hits playlist on Spotify. You decide to venture out to Court Street around 11:00 p.m. and post up in one of your favorite bars, let's say J Bar. The music is bumping while your most aggressive friend elbows their way up to the bar to grab drinks. You recognize that same chart topping song, drowning out the crowd, that you were listening to just hours before.

Now don't get me wrong, I love J Bar as much as the next bobcat. Plus, Listening to current pop music definitely brings out my "best" dance moves, but sometimes I don't want my night to feel typical. I want to change up the scene a bit. Some nights I'd rather sit back and watch a great musician perform. If that interests you (even just a little) then keep reading to discover five great places for live music in Athens, Ohio.
