I commend the owners for bringing more intimate settings to enjoy live music. I will share my one and only experience with Vosh. We went in there on a Friday evening. The band was great. The place was nearly empty except for the smattering of "mature" couples who had obviously chosen this spot for their date night. No one was dancing. The space looks fantastic and as a westsider I was thrilled to have a place to pop in for a night cap.
I take umbrance with the volume. (I should insert here that I am under 40!) The bartender couldn't even hear us yelling our drink order (prosecco and Macallan). I noticed that said couples were tucked around the perimeter of the room, not the bar. I thought that seemed strange until it occurred to me that too were trying to get away from decibel onslaught. My husband and I could not even carry on a conversation with each other. We left those night caps untouched on the bar.
Had the place been jumping, I would get it. But I just don't get why venues think that volume creates ambiance, it actually kills it.
I miss the Rockcliff. It was great local go-to spot for us. I can not seem to find anything good about Ferris, unless you like a bag of baby carrots marinated in Kool-Aid as a side dish. The of flat screens is reminiscent of Spector's "Wall of Sound". And who tears out a wood fire oven?
