Nestled in the back room of Canal Street Pub is Berks County’s newest acoustic concert venue. This comfortable listening room will provide an acoustically sound and musically intimate evening for fans of The Hot Club of Reading.

Canal Street Pub will present a unique food and cocktail menu especially for this concert, with 1930s Paris as inspiration. Patrons will be able to order food from a Hot Club concert menu before the performance and have it served during intermission.

Seating options:

inner-circle seating

1. Living room seating

Eleven seats (two double-seat sofas and seven low-back arm chairs) will be available immediately surrounding the band. Diagram is approximate.

2. General seating

An additional 90 seats have been carefully arranged, providing good sight lines for general admission seating. General seating consists of several rows of wooden dining chairs beyond the first row as well as some twenty padded bench seats along the perimeter of the space. Additionally, there is room for about ten on an elevated dining area which also provides unobstructed views of the performers.
