Taps at the Guardhouse
Every Friday from 6pm till 8pm enjoy Friday Night Live at Taps at the Guardhouse. Taps is a historic military jail now converted into an adorable bar serving delicious, seasonal pub food and craft cocktails on the Fort Worden campus.
On Fridays a different local artist or group from Jefferson County and beyond is featured and you can see who will be playing weekly by checking their Facebook for the monthly lineup. Past Friday Night Lives have included folk, country, jazz, blues, and more.
Sip on a craft beer, wine, or cider as you listen to live music in the one of the most eclectic and relaxing beer gardens. Live music is played on Saturdays at the Pourhouse as you take in the stunning views of the Puget Sound.
The beer garden (aka the Impound Lot) also has ping pong and bocce ball for you to play and breathe in the saltwater of our sleepy seaport. And if you get hungry, The Pourhouse has a bar snack menu and the option to bring in takeout food from neighboring, local restaurants.
The Cellar Door has live music every night of the week whether it is performances by seasoned professionals or karaoke and open mic nights. Sip on a creative, craft cocktail like the “Nearly Midnight” made with house fig vodka, earl grey tea, lemon, simple syrup and fennel bitters as you listen to intimate performances.
Sunday through Thursday is a mix of open mic/karaoke and jazz, blues, and Americana and on Fridays and Saturdays the Cellar Door hosts a range of different types of musicians from hip hop to folk. Click here to view their live music schedule.
Every Saturday and Sunday enjoy live music at Finnriver Farm & Cidery. Finnriver brings a diverse range genres like jazz-fusion, singer-songwriter, reggae, blues, and much more.
In addition to delicious cider tastings and ciders on tap, on the weekends Finnriver also offers farm-fresh food options like wood-fired pizza from Dented Buoy, bratwurst or savory field roast, and oysters from Hama Hama! Make sure to check their website for both music and food offerings!
The Keg & I
Chimacum’s newest watering hole, The Keg & I, offers a variety of live music events most nights featuring local artists.
Located in an old farmhouse, this taproom offers beer, cider, kombucha, and non-alcoholic ginger beer on tap as well as wine by the glass or bottle. When the weather gets warmer the music will move out to their cozy back patio! Click here to view their event schedule.
