Can't wait to go try this place. As for expanding and going upstairs, he should make it a blues club for Friday and Saturday nights. This area needs one real bad, the clubs are hurting. No more Sit-N-Bull, Stone Church. Tupelo is doing well, and Dantes Marlboro is a hot spot, but would really like to see something close to home.

there should definitely be a music venue upstairs, though it'll never compare to evo's in its prime in my opinion.

A blues club upstairs would be great, but we need some pool tables downtown!

we need a blues club with a jam night, no more good jam nights anywhere. BBQ restaurants and Texas Blues go together nicely, I was in Texas from 78-81 near Austin. That's what it was all about, bring back the roadhouse.

A pool hall downtown would be a goldmine.Live bands, flat screen tv's, air hockey, pub food.

I've heard it suggested that the potential unholy union of yuppies and thugs is what keeps it from happening.

It's the senior citizens who keep it from happening. If they would just die already or move the hell out of downtown and let the city and business owners make some $$$$.Everytime someone opens a bar or restaurant the seniors or yuppies who just moved here from Cambridge complain to the city council.Merrimack street should be lined with bars and restaurants.I hate to say it, but this city could learn something from Manchester NH.Downtown Manchester is hoppin' while downtown Lowell is floppin'.

A Texas style restaurant comes to town, and a convenience store a few towns away gets held up by the Lone Ranger.
Coincidence?

I will try this place again but I wasn't at all pleased with the beef ribs or the baby back. The bar service was very slow but I'll attribute that to just opening and getting to know the place.

No their Margaritas are the smallest I've seen and they don't like to actually put alcohol in their drinks but they do like to charge alot for them!

A gold mine for who?, the thugs and hoodlers that dominate the area?

We loved this place! The space is beautiful and the food was delicious and reasonably priced! We are already fans of the Brookline venue, and now we'll definately go back to the Lowell one too!

Well, nobody's been killed at the pool hall above Lowell Beer Works yet. Maybe if there was more to do downtown than eat, the types of people that hang out downtown would change for the better.
