Best Venue for One-Hit Wonders and Noodles

Triple Door

Of all the music venues in the city, the Triple Door is the only one to bring in the one-hit wonder as often as it does indie bands and national acts. Musicians like Joan Osborne, Shawn Mullins, and Edwin McCain have all graced its stage, to the delight of diehard fans and those who simply love, well, that one song. The swanky space has clear sightlines from every seat and a great sound system, so it feels as though your favorite artist has been brought back from pop-culture obscurity to play a private event at your request. Complementing the quasi–V.I.P. experience is the Asian-style cuisine served in the performance area, courtesy of Wild Ginger located upstairs. (Try the Thai-style seafood noodles—they're exceptional.) Sure, it would've been great to see these acts in their prime, but truth be told, the audience that sees them at this beloved downtown fixture gets a far more personal experience.—Erika Hobart
