Tory's 13 Must-Visit Spots for Live Music in Fairfield County

The Warehouse At Fairfield Theater Company, Fairfield CT 

Just steps from the Fairfield train station, The Warehouse seamlessly blends industrial aesthetics with a cozy atmosphere. Exposed brick, high ceilings, and innovative stage design create an unparalleled setting for diverse performances, ranging from live music to stand-up comedy

StageOne At Fairfield Theater Company, Fairfield CT 

StageOne boasts a completely different vibe than FTC’s Warehouse. In this intimate venue, no seat is more than a couple of dozen feet from the stage, ensuring that every guest is immersed in the live performance experience. The unparalleled intimacy of StageOne, coupled with its crisp acoustics, creates an atmosphere where the connection between artists and the audience becomes palpable

The Heartford Healthcare Ampitheater, Bridgeport CT

A quick stroll from the Bridgeport Train Station, this state-of-the-art open-air venue seats 5,500 people. Beyond its profound lineup of performances, the venue boasts an ambiance like no other. With Metro-North trains passing by mid-show, the atmosphere becomes electric, creating dynamic energy. Beyond stellar performances by some of the biggest names in music, concert-goers can savor local flavors and enjoy the convenience of food trucks flanking the stage on both sides

Park City Music Hall, Black Rock

Park City transcends the traditional boundaries between performers and the audience, creating an electrifying connection. Since opening, PCMH has welcomed nationally touring bands, Grammy winners, and rising stars. What sets them apart is the unique option to reserve their backspace for a private party while a show rocks the front space, offering a backstage-style hang for your special event! 

Wallstreet Theater, Norwalk 

Rooted in cultural heritage and renowned for its unique architecture, this dynamic theater features live performances, concerts, theater productions, and community events. Celebrated for its diverse entertainment, it stands as the prime destination for a vibrant cultural immersion in Norwalk.

The Black Duck, Westport

Perched over the Saugatuck River, ‘The Duck’ is a well-worn and much-loved local icon. A Westport staple and a personal favorite. Sticky, grungy, and perfectly off-centered. The eclectic decor, dim lighting, grumpy locals, heavy pours, juicy burgers, and consistent live music will make your wildest dive-bar dreams come true. Tuesdays bring out the karaoke stars, but Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays steal the show with live music.

Levitt Pavillion, Westport 

As a beacon of the community and artistic expression, The Levitt’s outdoor amphitheater hosts a diverse array of events, from free concerts and live music to theater productions and family-friendly gatherings. With its grassy knolls and relaxed seating, the Levitt Pavilion provides a laid-back setting, encouraging picnics, dancing, and shared moments under the stars.

Walrus Alley, Westport 

In the warmer months, Walrus Alley transforms its outdoor patio into a lively haven, bringing big music energy to downtown Westport. The cobblestone alley comes to life with high-energy live music, creating an inviting atmosphere illuminated by the warm glow of bistro lights. 

Sunset Grille, Norwalk 

Tucked away behind the Norwalk Cove Marina, Sunset Grille is a hidden gem with panoramic water views. In the summer, this waterfront patio bar comes to life with nightly live music and dancing, creating a lively atmosphere that rocks from early afternoon into the night.

Spotted Horse, Westport: 

A go-to destination for those seeking a bustling bar scene with a side of live music in the heart of downtown. The homey, tavernesque atmosphere, adorned with wooden beams and a bustling U-shaped bar, creates an ambiance that is both cozy and electric.
