When it comes to catching some good music under the stars, Brown's Island wins hands down! There is plenty of room to spread out and shake your groove thing. If you just want to see friends, the far end of the Island serves up beverages where you socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. Richmond's club life has a lot to be desired when looking for a good band venue. Brown's Island fills that void in the warmer months. Too bad our ski coats aren't enough to keep bands coming all year long.
Pros: Lots of space, Short beer lines, good acoustics
Cons: Poor parking, Not heated
