Carly Simon and a group of friends created this nightclub in 1979. Today, it has become a Vineyard landmark; many of the country's hottest comedians have jumped on the Roof stage. An eclectic group of musicians performing everything from reggae, folk and blues to swing music have also been featured at the club. Tickets may be purchased at various island outlets and the venue's box office. The club also features the Indigo Room where there is never a cover charge. The door generally opens at 8:30p.
Flying Bridge is a particularly appropriate name for this longtime Falmouth favorite because, like the flying bridge on a boat, the dining room offers a wide open view of the harbor and ocean beyond. Falmouth's Inner Harbor is one of the busiest on the Cape, so there's plenty of action to watch from a seat on the outside deck. In addition to its large dining room, there are also several intimate cocktail lounges. Talented local bands rock the house several nights a week during summer months.
Located in a handsome wooden home on Route 28, Oysters Too serves an appealing dinner menu year-round.

A piano player performs on Friday and Saturday evenings. There is a small children's menu, and early bird specials. The dining room has a brick fireplace and attractive wooden tables and chairs.
This 1790 stagecoach mansion contains eight romantic dining rooms, making it popular for wedding parties and private functions. One of the best dining experiences on the Cape features three menus: a moderately-priced three-course dinner menu from 5p to 6p, a lighter menu, and the full dinner menu. Menu items include pistachio-encrusted salmon, shrimp tempura or filet mignon with stilton cheese. The handsome, cranberry wood building is conveniently located right on Route 28, between Falmouth and Hyannis. Open year-round with a full liquor license, the mansion also features a lively piano bar. Reservations required.
This fine dining and entertainment experience is lauded by local magazines like Cape Cod Life for being the best on the Cape. There are several dining rooms, a lounge and a piano bar, all tastefully decorated with hardwood floors and oriental rugs. Menu items include pastas, baked lobster, oysters Rockefeller and veal madeira. On Friday and Saturday nights, the cafe comes alive with superb entertainers at the vintage piano bar. Monday night is the very popular jazz night in the Back Door Bistro, where you may enjoy lighter fare or the full menu.
This neighbourhood tavern with a small menu, pool tables, dart boards, and cold beer; it is a great place where old friends and new friends meet.
The Brotherhood is a cozy bar/restaurant offering "Good food, good drink and good company," or so it says on the sign hanging outside. An extensive drink menu accompanies, or upstages, the pub grub menu, which features extra thick sandwiches, chowder, Brotherhood fries and hamburgers; super sized. Live entertainment, offered on the weekends in the off-season and daily in season, is one of the big draws. Another is the relaxed, festive atmosphere, worthy of the line that snakes down Broad Street in season.
This restaurant is a consistent favorite among locals and visitors alike. Crayons and white paper tablecloths also make it a hit with the kids. This is a great place to meet for a quick drink or an evening out, grab a snack, or feast on fresh lobster, chowder, sandwiches and pastas—the menu ranges from pub fare to full-course dinners. After dinner stick around for the music, dancing and other festivities. There are early bird specials and a children's menu.
Established over half a century ago, The Chicken Box is somewhat an institution for people to get together in Nantucket. The years have seen different owners for the place, but the soul still remains the same: friendly people and foot-tapping music. Although they don't serve food, the place is located in an area with many restaurants and they do have a wide range of drinks. Music being the highlight, they have given special attention to the sound equipment to offer a memorable experience to their patrons. Take a break from the music and enjoy the other options like pool tables, dart boards and televisions. Funky merchandise can be purchased at the bar or online. Check the website for events calendar.
