Live Music in North Conway

If you’re in the mood for live music, North Conway has you covered. When the sun goes down, plenty of local bars and restaurants host live music performances, you’ll be dancing in no time! Keep reading below for our suggestions for a night on the town.

Stone Mountain Arts Center

Don’t miss the fantastic folk, comedy, blues, opera, classical, or Celtic performances (among many genres) at the Stone Mountain Arts Center. The performers at SMAC cover a wide range of talents, and you will never be disappointed. Plus, dinner is served prior to certain shows, and you will love the delicious comfort food. Thirsty? Drinks are served for each performance, ranging from beer and wine to cocktails.

May Kelly’s Cottage

In the mood for traditional Irish music? Local gem May Kelly’s Cottage is the spot for you. Every Sunday afternoon is Seisiun (session) at May’s. Seisiuns, according to May’s, are “informal gatherings of Irish traditional musicians that happen mostly in pubs.” Stop by for traditional Irish fare, and of course, a drink, and stay for the music.

Red Parka Pub

Lace-up your dancing shoes and visit the Red Parka Pub if you want to cut a rug! Along with serving delicious hand-cut steaks, burgers, and beer, the Red Parka Pub hosts live music on Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. Also, Sundays are “Blues Sundays,” so head over for a drink and great live music before the week starts again on Monday.

Beef & Ski

Nestled right in the heart of downtown North Conway, Beef & Ski is a local favorite. Take a seat overlooking the Conway Scenic Railroad and the spectacular White Mountain. Sit back and listen to the house band that plays every weekend in the summer. Tuck into a stacked roast beef sandwich while enjoying the soft classic rock by the band. Can’t beat that!

Wildcat Inn & Tavern

Head over to the Wildcat Inn and Tavern in Jackson on Tuesdays for “Hoot Night.” The longest-running open mic night in Mount Washington Valley, Hoot Night runs from 7-10 PM. Enjoy local performers as well as those getting on stage for the very first time! Grab a delicious meal, and enjoy the local musicians’ performances.
