Great Live music with a cozy modern vibe. Arrive early for the show, sit in the lounge at Union and grab a delicious wood-burning oven pizza.

You can get up close to the artists. Not only can you see great up and coming artists, but famous folks also grace their stage. Pizza from Union is available as well as great bar service.
