Martyrs' review image


$$$$773 404 9494

This North Center spot's eclectic performance line-up is great for discovering all styles of music. Martyrs' features a lot of genres, and a mixture of established as well as up-and-coming acts. And just going in blind is one of the best parts—we've been surprised with everything from a country set to a teenage rock band. The small venue is roomy, with plenty of space for dancing plus a bar where you can order some decent pizza.
