The original Independent Bar was opened in 2005 with a vision to support non-commercial products and music, and to encourage a sense of community among our patrons; the rest is history …

The atmosphere at the Indie is comfortable and ambient. There are no TV screens to distract from conversation. People can enjoy the outdoor Biergarten year-round, or sit inside at our custom made cedar wood bar. The Independent also hosts free weekly live music shows featuring talented local and touring musicians. The Event Calendar provides an up-to-date list of the upcoming beer, music and community events.

The Independent is open daily for breakfast and lunch, serving up gourmet coffee and tea, fresh baked goods, and some of the best bar food in the area. The Independent is a true “Neighborhood Bar,” in every sense of the word, and is proud to be the locals’ choice for great times and great libations.

Live music at First Saturday Jazz Series.

The Sunday School for Sinners Live Music Series is every third Sunday. Other live music is scheduled throughout the month.
