Veranda Music

Music takes place on Friday nights from 8-11pm in the Back Door Lounge once the weather has gotten too chilly to be outside on the Veranda. Be sure to try a Starved Rock Signature Ale or take advantage of our seasonal drinks! No cover charge!

Music on the Veranda takes place every Friday and Saturday night through Labor Day weekend. After Labor Day weekend, music will be moved into the Back Door Lounge. No cover charge! Tap takeovers take place throughout the summer! The takeovers include sampling beverages and giveaways for guests.
