From jazz bands to karaoke nights, our neighbourhood is home to some great live music events.

Here are some of the best spots in our 305 Roehampton and Hampton House neighbourhood to hang out, have a drink or a bite, and enjoy some live music.

 

Alley Catz

This restaurant serves Italian food with what it calls a “Mediterranean flair”. Every Wednesday at Alley Catz, Mark Stafford hosts an open mic blues night starting at 7pm. On weekends, a live band and a DJ play funk, soul, R&B and reggae. Other events include free dance lessons on Salsa Mondays and Bachata Tuesdays.

 

Rose and Crown

The Rose and Crown is a traditional, “rock n’ roll” pub that hosts live music every night of the week. The menu features the usual pub fare, along with an assortment of other dishes. Pool and dart tournaments are also on the events calendar and big screen TVs allow you to keep an eye on your favourite sports teams.

 

Kramer’s

Friendly and family-owned Kramer’s is a two-level pub and lounge. On the first floor, Friday and Saturday nights are packed with people singing karaoke. The fusion food menu consists of classic entrees and appetizers. Kramer’s also hosts meetup groups, other live music events, and trivia nights.
