RIVER CITY BLUES CLUB AND DART ROOM
The Blues Society of Central PA congratulates Rick Hefelfinger, Jonas Hair and their team on the successful completion and opening of the new River City Blues Club and Dart Room at 819 South Cameron Street, Harrisburg, PA. Rick and his crew have been working hard for over a year to make the first Blues Club in Harrisburg a reality, and it is a beauty! We hope you will come out and check it out. You will not be disappointed!
The club features a cafe, full bar service, and a huge dart room on the first floor, and the blues club in the lower level offers 12 beers on tap, along with a great selection of bottled beers and liquor. There is also a food menu, which was inspired by southern soul food, and you’ll even find some vegan and vegetarian options available. Also, there is lots of free parking!
NOTE: There is usually a $5 cover charge to see the bands in the lower level on Friday and/or Saturday evenings.
