The Green Room Gets A New Look

Published by:

Renovations are well underway at The Green Room, the premiere live music venue on the north shore.   The total transformation from front to back is not only taking shape, but gaining focus.  The interior is updated with a fresh new look, and plans for the back patio include a beer garden, which is currently under construction.

A Soft Opening is planned for the night of the May Block Party (Friday the 26th), with a Grand Re-Opening on the Fourth of July.  Forget all the speculation and stop by to see the progress for yourself.

The Green Room is located at 521 East Boston Street.      Phone:  985-892-2225
