Located on the iconic James Street North, This Ain't Hollywood provides Hamilton its daily fix of eclectic live music. On most nights, one can see this cool bar teeming with audiophiles, here to enjoy touring small-scale bands and local homegrown talent perform musical magic. Musical genres are anything but limited, and span all kinds of acts, from hip hop, jazz and rock, to folksy acoustics, and blues. In the past, This Ain't Hollywood has hosted Grammy-winning folks and blues singer Maria Muldaur perform to a roaring crowd.
The Doors Pub is a haven for rock music enthusiasts. Its lounge with dim lights, a chandelier, leather couches and posters of Jim Morrison has a nice feel to it. While the actual bar area has the iconic band's pictures all across and is a great place to head bang, drink and enjoy your night. Some of their previous listings are Dowsing, Adrenechrome, M.O. Littles and Morningside Lane.
