Editorial Review of
The Casbah has been open since 1989. Its first location had a legal capacity of 75 and hosted such bands as: Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Lemonheads, The Jesus Lizard, and Rocket From The Crypt. Casbah’s "new" location has a capacity of 200+ and there is an enclosed smoking patio, a back room featuring pool tables, pinball, the classic video game Galaga, and a full bar. There is also a music room with a full bar and a state-of-the-art sound system. Listen to awesome bands and music while also enjoying Casbah’s refreshingly wonderful outdoor patio.
