Taverns with Talent


There’s no shortage of bars with live music in Green Bay. There’s Keggers, found on Broadway Street. The beer garden has a lively atmosphere and serves up Green Bay’s local Hydrant pizza — and it happens to be connected to The Lyric Room, where a wide variety of genres can be enjoyed. The Black Saddle Tavern & Oasis has a saloon-like feel. Savor delicious pub grub while listening to local outfits.
