The Stage Rock Bar & Grill (Permanently Closed)
Erik Stage, owner of the Stage in the heart of the Gaslamp, calls the venue “three floors of entertainment in our haunted house of corridors and mezzanines.” In its third year, the Stage recently underwent a facelift, including new lights, sound system, and flooring.
“We’re trying to create a venue for all types of acts to perform for the busy Fifth Avenue Gaslamp market,” says Stage, “a good mix of bands and DJs with occasional surprises.”
Sure, the Gaslamp is Babylon, but to the Stage’s credit, the bar mixes up the vibe with a range of live music, including reggae, blues, rock, metal, and just about every other genre you might expect from a bar whose aesthetic hinges upon Flying V guitars, a pirate flag, and broken crash cymbals affixed to red brick walls. Thursdays feature a live early-era Van Halen tribute band from 8:30 to 10, followed by dubstep DJs until close.
