Willow Creek Lounge & Bar
Most Friday and Saturday nights Black Oak Casino hosts regional and national touring artists in the Willow Creek Lounge and Bar beginning at 9pm. The venue is nice with plentiful seating (200+) and the lounge is also non-smoking, although smoking is allowed in the casino area just outside. Sodas are free but sadly alcoholic drinks are not, even if you are gambling. There is a full-service bar with wait staff, a dance floor and bar-top video slots. The best part is most shows are free.
Concert in the Pines
Every Saturday night during the summer months Twain Harte hosts the Concert in the Pines. A different regional live band is featured each week on the Rotary Stage at Eproson Park. Concerts start at 6pm and usually go till around 8pm, sometimes longer. These concerts are free to the public but you may want to arrive early to secure a spot as the lawn area will quickly fill up with blankets and low-back chairs. Alcohol is allowed within the park.
Live Music at The Rock of Twain Harte
Most Friday evenings The Rock of Twain Harte hosts live music either on the balcony inside or on the patio outside. The Rock has a quaint, mountain atmosphere with a large selection of micro brews on tap as well as excellent food. There is a small bar with seating for about six or seven with big screens throughout the restaurant. They have a Happy Hour from 3-6pm Mon-Fri. For more info visit the website or call (209) 586-2080.
