This place springs to life when owner/trippy blues rocker Lonie Walker is at the helm—and that happens at least four nights a week. A little bit divey, this long, narrow bar has remarkably friendly staff, smiling even into the wee hours when the fans are really feeling the music. Underground Wonder Bar hasn’t had a quiet night since it opened in 1989, and it wins the “eclectic” award for bringing in funk, soul, reggae, rock, comedy, and even burlesque.
