Hair-band bar

From movie theater to disco, then biker bar to heavy metal venue — Harpo's has pretty much seen it all. One of the few big local venues that has kept its doors open without the help of mammoth promoters Clear Channel, the folks over at Harpo's have much of which they should be proud, not least of which is their (sometimes unpopular) dedication to long-hair rawk and hard-core music. Family-run, this east side watering hole remains true to its roots and brings the heady good times to the masses. For that, ya gotta love 'em.
