Best Music Venue - 2002
When Off Broadway changed ownership last year, the rumor mill went into overdrive, and all the speculation was bad. As it turns out, Off Broadway hasn't just kept everything that made the club the best place to hear live music in St. Louis; new owners Connie Garcia and Joe Telle have made the South Side institution even better. The club now offers tasty, reasonably priced bar food; features more beer on tap; and even sports a new wine list. Most important, Garcia and Telle have hired an excellent sound man in Dusty Durst, begun to take more chances on local bands and continued to book some of the best alternative-country, blues, folk, and rock acts in the country.
