The Sail Inn may be known for its devotion to jam bands and generally hippie-friendly vibe, but recent years have seen the selection of music there expand. Any given night you may find DJs rocking beats, indie rockers doing their thing, or any of the characteristically "love, peace, and chicken grease" type acts.
The Sail Inn features two stages, one indoors and one outdoors, so multi-band festivals fly by without pauses for set up time. The bar is fully stocked with beers and mixed drink ingredients, making the Sail a great place to catch a gig.
