Pete’s Candy Store

Pete’s Candy Store is a neighborhood staple. The stage is set in a long narrow space, almost like walking into a rail car. This is separated from the main bar with a sliding glass door. There is also a backyard patio. The bar also serves grilled cheese sandwiches. Primarily a music venue, the intimate space hosts several regular reading series including The Rally and Pete’s Reading series.
