Evenings in Middlebury
Live Music + Other Entertainment
By Karen Duguay, Better Middlebury Partnership
For a small downtown, we have an abundance of live entertainment options, courtesy of many of our local restaurants. And, I’ve been told by several business owners that the live entertainment they offer is in direct response to customer feedback…so if you have an idea share it with them. Here are a few options that I hear about-but be sure to let us know about your favorites in the Middlebury area if they aren’t on this list!
Notte, (pronounced [no·tay], the Italian word for ‘night’), occupies the space of the former Two Brothers Lounge. With weekly karaoke (Tuesdays at 9:00pm) as well as weekly trivia (Wednesdays 7:00-9:00pm), Notte also features regular live music from local favorites. Combined with DJs, open mic nights, craft cocktails and a full menu served until 11pm (with late night slices available until the music ends!), Notte is a consistent entertainment option in the downtown.

When Rough Cut bid adios to their mechanical bull Ferdinand, they welcomed a full schedule of live music. With drink specials and live music by a wide variety of local artists and bands several nights a week, Rough Cut is quickly becoming Middlebury’s live music hotspot in addition to a BBQ favorite. Check their calendar of events at roughcutbbq.com
The crew at Coriander (Washington St next to the Co-op) have begun bringing in live music to complement the delicious cuisine. Be sure to check their website, coriandermiddlebury.com, for additional events like wine pairing and other special dinners.
In addition to going to Marquis to watch the latest movies, you can also enjoy weekly trivia (Thursdays), live comedy shows, movie roasts and other live entertainment every week. Snack on authentic southwestern food from the Southwest Cafe. View the Marquis Theater calendar of events at their website: middleburymarquis.com
