Welcome to Duffy’s Tavern. Whether you know us as the Home of the Fishbowl™, your favorite venue for some of the best live music around, a place to watch comedy every week, a spot to celebrate a special event, or just a neighborhood bar, we welcome you to join us. Whether it’s in the bar or outside by the fire, we’re sure you will have a great time.
We’re known for a lot of things, but if you ask any of us, we will tell you that we’re a music venue. Many national acts have graced our stage, including Nirvana, 311, Bright Eyes, the Boss Martians, Slobberbone, Wesley Willis, and many others. A lot of us think some of the local acts are even better, and on any Sunday or Wednesday night, you can be assured Duffy’s stage will be jumping with some of the best original music around.
Every Monday is comedy night. This has been happening since Reg McMeen bought Duffy’s in 1986. Since that time, our comedy workshop has helped numerous comics hone their skills. Mark Gross, Jim Hannah and comedy legend Red “The Velvet Hammer” Tolnai are a few of note.
On Tuesday, you can expect to find a tallboy for a buck, and on Thursday Shithook, will entertain you with “live karaoke” – no karaoke machine for us. A real band, and you are the singer.
No matter the evening, no matter the event, we welcome you to enjoy the friendly staff and the fun atmosphere that is Duffy’s Tavern. See you soon.
