Music and Sometimes Story Nights

Live Stage Music, Never a Cover Charge!
Many years ago the Tumwater started a new and exciting stage music, bands, singers, local musicians, groups and story tellers in Leavenworth! We purchased a piano, guitars, built a stage, added lighting, sounds system, mics, and completed it with the greatest crowds and appreciative guests anyone could want. We changed the bar format to where there is no standing when drinking (rare occasions), great dinner specials, great drink specials, and absolutely NEVER A COVER CHARGE! You will never see Karaoke in this bar! You will only see and hear the best groups, singers, songwriters, and musician east of the Cascades! .
