While you’re in the McCaysville area, plan a stop at Tooney’s on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays for more music fun. Thursdays are Open Mic Night and Fridays & Saturdays are for special guests. Beer and wine flow freely at this location on the river, but if you’re hungry just BYO from Burra Burra or Twisted Tomato (also in the Riverwalk Shops.)
Those who enjoy a Grumpy Old Men beer, but prefer a full dining menu will find local brews, spirits, and delicious eats at Misty Mountain Hops. This music-centric restaurant offers live music several times a week.
One of the best places to see the sunset in Downtown Blue Ridge is from the rooftop of the Hampton Inn, at Hook & Eye. Enjoy a cocktail either inside or out, and enjoy live tunes on Friday and Saturdays and be sure to check out Music Bingo on Thursday nights.
Last but not least, The Vine and Eatery The Vine and Eatery is a small family-owned eatery and wine bar. Amazing food. A large array of wines. Enjoy wine tasting, flights, and bites.
Have lunch or dinner in downtown Blue Ridge's original wine bar. Nice selection of craft beers as well for you non-wine drinkers. Be sure to check out their Wine Slushies to beat the heat. They also have a dog-friendly patio out back.
