Dada. Where else can you get roasted duck in an onion-raisin marmalade or bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with goat cheese and chorizo while catching a local show? Dada is a West Palm Beach restaurant owned by the Subculture Group — which also owns Subculture Coffee and Howley’s Diner, to name a few. Over the years, Dada has hosted bands, acoustic sets, open-mics and comedy nights. A winning perk is that the venue’s shows run late, as does its kitchen.
Voltaire. This West Palm Beach venue has officially been slinging craft cocktails and sushi for a year now. Voltaire recently celebrated its one-year anniversary with a multi-day music festival. The old school, 18th century inspired venue — that looks like a place the author it gets its name from would be cozy at — hosts local indie and touring bands and according to the space’s Marketing Manager, Steve Rullman, it’s only going to happen more within the next year. “More and more touring bands, showcases, tastings, parties and special events,” Rullman recently told New Times. He said patrons can also expect comedy, Ted Talks and burlesque shows
Respectable Street. For over two decades, Respectable Street has served as the go-to venue on Clematis. What used to be a Salvation Army building was renovated into the familiar space with the old couches and checkered floors we know and love today. The venue hosts local and national acts, with alumni including The Damned and Big D and the Kids Table.
