This small chain of venues combines some big name blues artists with an amazing soul food menu.

This is a true Las Vegas hot spot and a place where you dress to the nines to see a live DJ set or a band. It's glitzy and with stunning dancers dazzling their audiences. This is a place to be seen and enjoy some music, amazing surroundings and the outdoor sizzling desert breeze.

6. Grand Sierra Resort and Casino, Reno, NV

7. The Saint, Reno, NV

A new feature in the Midtown District of Reno, this space hosts a great mix of local bands and DJs.

The space is wide open and offers both indoor and outdoor venues for listening to a live band. The music hall not only serves as a nice music venue but they also serve their own beer direct from their brewery.

8. Bunkhouse Saloon, Las Vegas, NV

A cool road house type feel in Las Vegas? This is a locals favorite away from the strip in it's own freestanding spot big enough to draw some mid-range bands that aren't quite ready for a stadium venue. The country western theme lends to folk type bands as well as the standard country groups.

9. Singer Social Club, Reno, NV

A throwback to the lost art of the small diner shows, this social club will take you back to 1940s and beyond.

It is a different kind of venue for an enjoyable night out in Reno without losing your hearing in a huge rock type venue. This is the type of place you can expect to dance the night away to some great local music with a solid sound system even if you aren't familiar with the bands by name just yet.

10. Artifice, Las Vegas, NV

This quirky and sultry bar offers something a little different in Las Vegas. They have a smaller stage for the best of burlesque type production shows where local and out of town bands meet a true experience bar. The lighting is dim and the tone is grown up but not quite adult. This is a fun little lounge with a sassy twist with both male and female burlesque dancers along side live music.
