The Rhythm Room
The Rhythm Room

1019 E Indian School Rd
Phoenix, AZ 85014   Directions Website

The Rhythm Room is a musicians' venue, where talented players know the acoustics and ambiance help make it a magical evening. In fact, this low-key nightlife spot has hosted such talents as Rosie Ledet & the Zydeco Playboys, Jimmie Vaughan, Sophie B. Hawkins and Nils Lofgren, just to name a few.

The Rhythm Room is a venue that musicians appreciate, creating a jam-session style of atmosphere that feels more like you're sitting in on a recording session, rather than a canned performance.

In this come-as-you-are club, the music takes center stage and everything else is secondary.

The Rhythm Room is actually one of Phoenix's best-loved and lowest-profile clubs, a kind of insider's secret that's as much fun to discover as it is to return to time-and-time again for great music.

The Rhythm Room has showcased some of the best blues singers to travel the southwest. Performers like Rosie Ledet & the Zydeco Playboys, Jimmie Vaughan, Sophie B. Hawkins and Nils Lofgren have played here, just to name a few.

The club layout means that no spectator is more than 30 or 40 feet from the stage. To note: Regulars say the bathrooms are clean and the drinks are strong. Sounds like this granddaddy of the live music scene in Phoenix was built to last.
