Somewhere Else Tavern was opened by Burley Hayes on July 3, 1979 on Freeman Mill Road & moved it to its present location on Friendly Ave across from Guilford College in 1998. Dave Kindred began doing sound at the Tavern in 1994. Stefan runs the video recording booth consisting of 10 cameras. Sonni LeCompte is everyone’s favorite bartender and handles the booking for the Tavern.

The Tavern is the perfect place for young bands to start out and also host larger touring bands. Most shows are at the great price of 5 dollars.
