If you are looking for places to catch the best live music in Auburn, look no further.
The Auburn music scene is alive and well, and The Plainsman has curated a short list of some of the best places to catch local artists jamming out.
Avondale Bar and Taproom
Overlooking downtown Auburn, the Avondale Bar and Taproom hosts numerous gatherings per month, showcasing some of the most talented local artists in an easy-going atmosphere. Views of the sunset through the front windows welcome listeners in as they sip their drinks, carefully crafted by Avondale’s bartenders.
John Emerald Distilling Company
Located in the heart of downtown Opelika, this is a warehouse-style distillery with a special listening atmosphere. Concerts and shows take place in the outdoor space next to the distillery. Listeners are exposed to harmonious sounds and picturesque views of the night sky, dotted with delicate stringed lights floating above their heads.
If you are looking for some java to go with your jam, look no further than Auburn’s own Coffee Cat. This small coffee shop is located on Tichenor Avenue, next to City Hall, and hosts monthly concerts in their open space.
A tiny dot on the map 15 minutes from Auburn, this place is the home of the annual Waverly 280 Boogie and is a local favorite.
They host shows Out in The Yard and often serve up Mama Mocha’s coffee and local cuisine to accompany the sultry Southern sounds that roll over The Plains.
