2015 BEST OF
Best Open Jam/Open Mic [bluegrass jam]
Best Bar #2
“...as you stretch out on the split-timber benches under the old barn's bare rafters, you slowly realize you're in the family room of one of the weirdest neighborhoods in America ... it's like a frontier dance hall in a mining town where the vein's gone dry. The dreams are alive, but appealingly bruised.”
Tom Colligan - Esquire, June 2007
Sam Bond's Garage
is the hub(cap) of the vibrant, eclectic and ever evolving Whiteaker neighborhood and Blair Historic District in Eugene.
Opened in 1995, we've striven to represent the uniqueness of the neighborhood with a warm, laid back atmosphere, always changing local and regional microbrew selection, a full bar, quality vittles and of course, one of the west coast's best places to see diverse local, regional and worldly entertainment on a nightly basis.
We open daily at 4 pm. Kids under 21 are welcome to bring their parents, and can stay until 8:30. We also have two great outdoor patios, one being non-smoking. Our shows start at 9 on weekdays, 9:30 on weekends and 8:30(generally) on Sundays. Bingo on Monday night is a hoot and the Bluegrass jam on Tuesday is a hootenany. Both are free. All of our other shows vary in price. Check our calendar. We also have an open Irish jam on Sunday afternoons that's become a tradition here.
It's a fun place. Hope you can make it down(or up) sometime soon!
