  • Monday through Friday 1 p.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday and Sunday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
What was once a quaint suburban bar turned into a full-fledged music venue in 2008, when the Toad Tavern space was expanded to nearly 5,000 square feet and filled with new furnishings, refinished surfaces, raised ceilings and a stage that's been beefed up considerably from its postage-stamp-sized predecessor. The new stage can easily accommodate a ten-piece act or more, and professional-quality sound and lighting are also now in place. In addition to recruiting a steady stream of local and national rock acts, the Toad brings in a fair amount of nationally known blues artists.
