Middle East Upstairs

The Middle East Upstairs is another one of the venues maintained by the Middle East Restaurant. Also located on the same corner as the other Middle East Venues and Restaurant, the Upstairs provides a very different, and typically brighter, experience. A 194-capacity room featuring a small bar, the Upstairs is a small, boxy club that manages to pull you in with its unique charm. Featuring a handful of local acts and smaller touring acts, the Middle East Upstairs is a remarkable venue to see a concert up-close-and-personal. Re-entry is permitted; security is not extreme/excessive; occasional all-ages events; complimentary water is provided.
