At first glance, Shaw's appears to be a typical sports bar, displaying neon lights, high top tables, familiar beer on tap, a patio and an array of regulars. However, after a look around, these seemingly plain wall hangings reveal themselves as a much more unique collection of music-themed art (some local) and old vinyl collection turned decoration. The corner is set up with a large stage to host nights of rhythm & blues, jazz and open jam sessions. The bartenders and clientele make newcomers feel incredibly welcome, and recommend a beer or an item from the menu of legendary burgers and bar food.
