Located adjacent to the Orion Amphitheater is a one-of-a-kind space that combines the best aspects of a no-frills dive bar with the electric energy of live music, resulting in a magnetic attraction for those seeking a fun and casual night out.
Huntsville, meet Jeff and Blues. The playful, no-fuss kid brother of The Orion Amphitheater.
Having just opened its doors in April, Jeff & Blues has emerged as a refreshing haven for enthusiasts of live music, good drinks, and memorable ‘good folks’ bartenders. This unique establishment, which seamlessly blends a bar, a barn, and event space, has quickly become a casual hotspot for Huntsvillians (and surrounding area locals) asking, “Where should we go tonight?”
Central to the charm of Jeff & Blues is its dedication to providing good Southerner friendly ‘dranks’. The establishment’s drink menu is quite unique, offering bar-goers an intriguing array of beverages that showcase both time-honored classics and creative cocktails.
The menu features spiked slushes, mimosa flights, and creatively named cocktails like “Permanent Vacation” and ‘Trouble No More.” For the traditional drink lovers, you’ll be happy to sample the “Blue Old Fashioned” or enjoy their boilermakers and beers. (See menu below)
Located just beyond the North Gate, Jeff and Blues reminds you of a North Alabama barn you’ll pass on the back roads of Highway 72 during a road trip. If feels familiar.
Inside of the barn, they kept it simple. Exposed ceiling beams that feature a hanging vintage yellow bicycle and other hand-selected vintage memorabilia that ignites a sense of nostalgia and curiosity. It all comes together beautifully while holding fast to its no fuss and frills theme.
From the moment you arrive, the barkeeps and servers serve up genuine interactions that make you feel welcome and at ease. This blend of attentive service and Southern warmth creates an environment where you are encouraged to relax, unwind, and enjoy the moment.
Whether you’re attending a live music event, sharing laughter with friends over drinks after a show, or simply driving around Huntsville trying to find something to do on a Friday night after midnight, Jeff & Blues provides a haven where comfort and familiarity thrive.
Good drinks. Good folks. Good Vibes.
We dig it.
