Usually at the this time of year I’m really really excited and just can’t wait to get through the last of the dog days of summer. Don’t get me wrong I’m excited that summer is over but this summer was great for The Cellar. July and August were really solid months which is unusual. Having said that, those two months have been more solid than they had been previously. I am really excited about the upcoming year at The Cellar and gig wise.
The club will be going through a bunch of new changes in the coming weeks including new sound system, new stage, new sinks and countertops in the bathrooms, new menu, new wine list, new whiskey list, new tables etc. etc. We are also very close to signing a new lease so all things are moving forward!
