Urban Onion

Olympia, Washington, USA

Five comments

Located in the lobby of the old Olympian hotel right outside the restaurant. Session usually lasts from 8pm to just before 10pm. Suitable for intermediate to advanced musicians. There are no set tune list, but many of the ‘standards’ will pop up.

I stopped in here a few weeks ago to inquire about the session, but I got the “Deer Caught in the Headlights” look from the staff on duty. There is no more session here, at least not regularly. Try Tugboat Annie’s on Wednesday nights.
