Greenville offers enough live music that you'll be hard-pressed to choose how to spend your evening. From a sophisticated jazz bar along the river to an out-of-the-way locals club for good old fashioned rock-n-roll, Greenville has it all. Many downtown restaurants, like Sassafras Southern Bistro, also offer nice live music, although it's not the main reason patrons go in. Greenville has long offered free concerts on Main Street, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, which truly sets it apart. As if that weren't enough, the Peace Center performing arts hall recently added a state-of-the-art amphitheater along the banks of the Reedy River, giving visitors and locals even more ways to enjoy great music outdoors. Small clubs along and just off Main Street offer live music on a weekly basis; these include Smiley's Acoustic Cafe, the upscale Blues Boulevard and the always-busy Nose Dive (adjacent to the Poinsett Hotel). Off the beaten path is Pleasantburg Drive's Gottrocks bar, where parking is free, and a jeans-and-tee-shirt local crowd goes to chill or dance.
