History shares the bill with live theater in Petaluma’s unique venues for live entertainment.
Cinnabar Theater, housed in a 1908 two-room schoolhouse, has been a shining star in Petaluma for more than 40 years. This intimate theater regularly presents live opera, drama, cabaret and musical performances. It is entertainment worthy of a big city without the big city ticket prices.
Described as the North Bay’s premier music venue, McNear’s Mystic Theatre was built in 1911 to host vaudeville performances. The Mystic has an illustrious history and has hosted diverse artists from surf guitar king Dick Dale to rocker Joan Osborne. The theater, with a full bar and restaurant and upstairs game room, has everything you need for a memorable night on the town.
Lagunitas Brewing Company, famous for their Lagunitas IPA, knows that live music has to be in the mix for a good time. Come as you are and enjoy some great local bands in a very “chill” environment at their TapRoom and Beer Sanctuary. Children and dogs welcome!
If you’re in the mood for live music in a more intimate setting, you won’t have to look far afield. Wine bars throughout downtown host jazz trios and singer-songwriters that pair perfectly with a Sonoma County Pinot Noir.
