This first-rate live music venue – widely regarded as one of the best in the Southeast – hosts a wide range of acts week to week, from regional faves like Acoustic Syndicate to national acts like Ben Harper, Damien Rice and the Smashing Pumpkins. The Peel has a spacious floor area for their mostly general admission, standing-only shows but there are typically 50-70 stools set around the perimeter of the room available at a first come/first served basis. The smoke-free facility also features a huge dance floor made from springy wooden slats ideal for boogie-filled nights. Expect also live stand-up comic acts, free cult classic movies and open mic nights at this unfussy venue.

Access is for members only (ages 21+) but memberships are just $2/year and are available at the onsite membership desk during shows. There could be an additional cover charge."
