Weekly Events at Nightingale Cocktail

At Nightingale Cocktail, no two nights are the same. Every week, we host a variety of events featuring a wide range of music and a completely different vibe. Pick a night that's tailor-made for your particular style, or step out and experience something new—while enjoying the same fun, upscale vibe regardless of day. Unless noted, events are 21+ and ID is always required.

Cumbia Wednesday features Latin music from across the globe—Banda, Vallenato, Baião, Ranchera, Punta, Norteña, Merengue, Forró, Rock, Salsa, Huapango, and more. Work up a sweat as the area's best DJs rock the dance floor and quench your thirst with specialty cocktails like the Caipirinha (Brazil's National Cocktail) and Cerveza Pacifico and enjoy a late night snack courtesy of Brenda's Catering serving a rotating menu of tacos on the patio (weather permitting).

Homegrown: Live + Local Thursday

Thursday night is for music lovers and artists alike! Join us as we share live music, handcrafted cocktails, and good times. Local singers and songwriters share their music from 9-11 PM. As live music comes to a close, our DJ takes the stage to provide an eclectic mix of music for drinking and dancing.

Although we strongly recommend that Singer/Songwriters wishing to perform reserve a time using our online system, we also make every effort to accommodate drop-in performers as time allows.
