Where It All Began

When we were first designing the concept of The Twelve Bar Lounge, we knew that we wanted to create a unique home for musicians to play and enjoy their experience here. Our goal has been to bring in bands from not only our backyard but also across the United States.

We have always believed that food, drinks, and music bring people and the community together. When combining all three together, we have been able to create a location that people can make memories.

We are constantly trying to find musicians from all places, genres, and backgrounds. We do this to help ensure a diverse atmosphere that makes each experience different and unique.

Thank you to all of the musicians that have joined us or will be joining us here at The Twelve Bar! If you are interested in performing at The Twelve Bar Lounge, please fill out the form below.

Where Harmony Finds Its Home: The 12 Bar Lounge Journey

In the genesis of The 12 Bar Lounge, our vision was clear—to craft a distinctive haven for musicians to share their craft and revel in the unique atmosphere we envisioned. Beyond borders, we set our sights on welcoming bands not only from our local community but from across the vast expanse of the United States.

A Fusion of Sound, Flavor, and Community

Our belief in the unifying power of food, drinks, and music guided our mission. By seamlessly intertwining these elements, we aspired to create more than just a venue but a space where people could weave memories together. The 12 Bar Lounge became a testament to the belief that these three pillars can unite a community and enrich the fabric of shared experiences.
