Bio: One of Truckee’s finest venues for live music, Cottonwood regularly hosts acoustic acts in their popular Fireplace Room. One of Truckee's most historic structures, the building that houses Cottonwood once served as the warming hut for Truckee's ski hill. The music lineup features a blend of acoustic folk, blues, country, and bluegrass performed by local as well as touring musicians. Cottonwood is one of the most intimate indoor music venues anywhere, with space for only 40 persons, which makes for great audience interactions. Happy Hour lasts all night long on “Acoustic Thursdays”, with discounts on a number of menu items and libations. “We are very fortunate to have such a deep reservoir of musical talent right here in our own back yard”, says Cottonwood owner Mike Blide. “To be able to showcase this talent in such an intimate and historic venue, overlooking our town…it makes for some magical evenings”. Cottonwood is a full service, fine dining dinner house with a full bar, eclectic menu focusing on sustainably caught fresh fish and grass fed, hormone-free beef. Voted North Tahoe's Best Restaurant for four years in a row. Reservations are appreciated and often mandatory.
