You walk in and it feels like any other bar/pub... around the corner you'll find a small stage .. and a lot of equipment. Some big names come and play here... this is where the band Phish started out.... if you want loud music beer and pub food .. this is where you'll find it.

We came to Burlington to go out to bars and this was our last stop. Great drinks and music upstairs. Had a reasonable $5 entire fee. Music was pretty good mix of hits over the years with a dance floor as you enter. Staff was quick to serve and prices were fairly decent. Definitely a place to go for cocktails... More

We went here for dinner as part of our brew tour, but I wanted to review it separately as well bc the food we had as part of our tour was delicious!! We had sliders that had this wonderful sauce on top. The wings we samples with a buffalo, maple, garlic sauce was amazing (and I am so sad we... More

Stopped in and were lucky enough to hear a set from a great local band. Good beers on tap and friendly staff and patrons.

simply the best variety nightlife establishment in VT. historic and still hip. they book enough compelling national acts to harmonize their roll as gate keeper for middle-echelon NE bands. the wings wear creative and punchy sauces and the waitresses are not only hotter on average than the typical VT-6s in BTV hospitality, but they are by and large excellent at...

We went on a Dead Set night. They were pretty good and we had a great time. The clientele seemed to be mostly uvm students, definitely some younger (I think it's 18+) and some older folks (50s and 60s). Decent prices on the drinks - we got a couple "ketel and sodas" for $6 each. Heavy on the soda and... More

With two floors of live entertainment open 7 days a week, Nectar's has something for everyone. In addition to great tunes, Nectar's dishes out great food in addition to their world famous gravy fries. The burgers are amazing but my personal favorite are their wings.
