This is Hampton's place for live blues and rock. The crowd is friendly, the service is good, and the shows entertaining. I heard the Blues Cats, who performed a selection of classic blues and rock in fine style. It's a fairly modest, unpretentious place.
Dress Code: Come as you are.

I've never been there, but I was interested in the architecture. Bob incorrectly idenified it as the Spectrum, which I think is in Philadelphia.

if you're the type of person who loves going to the clubs or just likes going out w/ a couple of friends to have fun then you should go to VA BEACH or HAMPTON. VA Beach is pretty good w/ their clubs; especially in the spring and summer time ( I recommend you go then, of course). you really wont need to drive your car around town just to see a club because they're pretty much next door to each other. Clubs like Peabody's are popular in VA Beach. Also check out Heartbreak Cafe, Have a Nice Day Cafe, Bar Norfolk, and TBH (The Beach House).
