The Continental Club's sister spot Shoeshine Charley's Big Top Lounge brings a little different action to Mid-Main.
Funky and eclectic with bright lights and a bit of a vintage circus, Big Top boasts "no cover ever" and a clever motto of "no phone-no pool-no pets." You'll discover fun new bands of many stripes and get to play foosball or shuffleboard with your buds if you so desire.
Big Top is a bit more low-key than Continental Club, with finishings that date back decades to when this spot was a toy store. The entire interior is bathed in red light for a slightly eerie, dream-like vibe.
