In a city where history is measured in months instead of decades, the Mint is a real cultural treasure. The bar has been presenting live music ever since it opened in 1937, and Stevie Wonder, Macy Gray, Ray Charles, Zigaboo Modeliste, Leo Nocentelli, Royal Crown Revue and the Wallflowers are among the many notable musicians who've performed on its small stage. The room has a homey appeal, with kitschy artifacts like Johnny Cash paintings and glass display cases with souvenirs from such celebrities as Jackson Browne artfully blended with burnished wooden walls and cozy booths decorated with ornate lamps and plush velvet drapes. The ceiling above the bar is covered with old vinyl 45s, and the overall vibe appeals to rock & roll fanatics and hardcore roots-music aficionados. The large menu puts a fresh spin to classic American, Asian and Southwestern fare with such specialties as calamari tempura, Creole jambalaya, grilled salmon with mango chutney, "twisted" mac & cheese, and smoked Gouda and chicken quesadillas. You can sit at the bar, which has a full range of beer, wine and spirits, or at comfortable booths along the walls. Better yet, find a seat at the tables that abut the low stage for an even more intimate musical experience. Ages 21 & over. Street parking.
Intimate bar and live performances. The names keep getting bigger on the marquee. I was lucky enough to be there with a friend one night when BEN HARPER wandered in. Next thing you know he was jamming with the house band. The absolute perfect setting for a moment like this!
