Best New (Mostly) Free Music Room


Lil Indies

1036 N. Mills Ave.

This little secret has become arguably the best new craft brew hideaway on Mills Avenue. But because it’s the sister spot to Will’s Pub, it only took a short while for the music strand deep in its DNA to show. Now, it’s host to a vibrant carousel of themed music nights including ’90s R&B (I Don’t See Nothin’ Wrong), ’80s underground (Smilin’ Dan), ’50s and ’60s dance (Shake a Tail Tuesdays), jazz (Absinthe & Friends) and even a monthly record club, all for no cover. It also sometimes hosts exceptionally intimate special performances by notable touring musicians (Matt Pond, Matt Woods, etc.).
