Best New Venue



From the soulful reggae-blues pop of Maui-born Anuhea, to the heavy Louisiana-boiled Cajun rock of Lost Bayou Ramblers, to the punky-Motown frenzy of Chantal Claret, Vinyl has hosted a diverse array of artists and bands in the year since it’s been open. The sound there is great, the dark-wood bar (with its attractive ’tenders) is fun to belly-up to and we love watching people exiting a butt-rock residency show at the adjacent Joint only to discover there’s something even cooler happening in this little venue in the Hard Rock Hotel. There isn’t another spot in town that offers as much musical diversity.
