There are a number of places in Marin County where you can eat dinner, have drinks and hear live music, and in some cases, youâ€™ll have to eat dinner before going, but get ready. Live music is alive and well in Marin County! In fact, quite a few towns have more than one place thatâ€™s their claim to fame. Fairfax is perhaps best known for its line up of nightclubs on Broadway, including their 19 Broadway, The Sleeping Lady and Periâ€™s Silver Dollar. These places rock almost every night of the week.
Â For the slightly more sedate of us, thereâ€™s Sausalito, which features several places with live music. These include the No Name Bar, which jumps with live music every night of the week; Saylorâ€™s, which used to be Sailorâ€™s Landing; and Taste of Rome, which used to be Cafe Trieste. Both Saylorâ€™s and Taste of Rome feature live music on the weekends.
