Music and Nightlife

Get your groove on...

......or just sit back and enjoy the show! From the bars of Uptown Athens to Stuart's Opera House in Nelsonville, there's always great entertainment just around the corner. Where else can you catch a blues, rock, punk or bluegrass band on the same night, often just steps away from each other?


Music and Athens are a match made in heaven and have been since the early 1960s when Ohio University's student population boomed, creating a hotbed of musical activity that has remained vibrant ever since. Athens is known throughout Ohio and the region for its eclectic and lively music scene.
