Select Fridays & Saturdays
The Live at Lumiere: Open Mic Night is hosted by Chad Yochum and Travis Cottle, regulars in the Marietta music scene who are excited to open up a new avenue for local musicians to play and connect. This is the only open mic night around that is set up with a warm studio sound rather than your typical live PA sound. No plugging in. No sound-checking. Just play. The custom-built stereo condenser mics will do the rest. And you will sound fantastic! Whether you like to sing, play music, or just prefer to drink delicious cocktails while listening to great local acts, come to Live at Lumiere: Open Mic Night on Thursdays from 7pm-11pm.
As you sink into a plush couch or join a friend at a café table, the modern world seems to drift away as classic silent films quietly flicker in the background while a live pianist plays. The Lumière Lounge’s much-lauded specialty cocktail menu, featuring sips made with local Hometown Honey, and live pianist create a perfectly intimate setting for a date night cocktail. Lumière is held on the second floor lounge Friday and Saturday nights from 7-11pm. 21+.
