The Handlebar: A Listening Room

Rating 4.4 (average of 947 opinions)

The Handlebar, currently seeking a new venue, has presented thousands of concerts featuring a vast array of musicians, from the legendary to the unknown.

The Handlebar: A Listening Room

The Handlebar opened in September 1994 and since became the premier concert venue in the Upstate. The Handlebar's first location, at a 100-year-old textile mill, proved an unforgettable launching pad, until owners moved to an old auto-body shop on the other side of town. In April 2014, the venue was shuttered, but seeks a new location. In its 20 years in Greenville, the legendary concert spot (both spots!) helped launch the careers of John Mayer, Zac Brown Band, Sugarland and many more; welcomed such legends as John Hiatt, Joan Baez, Dr. John and more; and promoted dozens of Grammy Award and Grammy-nominated artists, as well as at least a half-dozen Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame inductees -- in all, more than 3,000 shows, leaving a last cultural impact on the community..
