Our group---5 couples---found a deal on Groupon, and decided to give this place a try. the deal was $10 pp with 2 drinks included. We had such a good time. Good hits, bad hits, raunchy dancing, it was a fun night

This place is awful. My ticket was only about $12, but the whole experience had a focus on getting money from the patrons - and not at all subtly. There was a 2-drink minimum spend, although I only had one and nobody tried to make...More

Dexter, Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your evening at Tobacco Road. As you may, or may not, be aware, most cabaret venues have a drink minimum, in order to cover the costs of the show they are providing. And...More

The night we went, visitor from Indiana (I believe) played the second piano...Nov 3rd. 2018. Truly amazing how they can play songs on call. Add comedy and certainly drinks. Service was great as was the entertainment. Very good time...make reservations and SHO up on time.

These guys are a good time! Wherever they are, go see them. They know a ton of songs and for a stack of cash, the will play your song. Or stop playing it if someone else pays more than you did!

The different musicians where fantastic and fulfilled all expectations as well as requests. The crowd enjoyed it and as it was not packed movement to watch the show from different angels was easy. Highly recommend for a night with beer and music.

Hi Sydney! No, it's not strictly 21+. However, please keep in mind a few things: 1) the show takes place in a bar 2) there is adult language and adult themes 3) this is basically like taking someone to an R rated comedy
