"iowa city's best venue for live music" 

Says Raia Lichen, who moved back to Iowa City after living 10 years in one of New York's top hotspots for live music in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.  

"The Trumpet Blossom brings in a variety of shows from folk to punk rock to funky electric dance music.  The beautiful handcrafted bar makes it a unique space in Iowa City to enjoy not only the live performances but the space itself.  There is no other place in Iowa City where you can order a well made classic cocktail, a local brew, or a simple PRB and rock out, chill out, or let loose to some of the best performers in the area and on tour. "
