One can't talk about the Charleston music scene without first mentioning The Empty Glass at 410 Elizabeth St. Legends have played there, and legends have been made there for decades. It is the proverbial bar that just won't die. You need a variety? They got it. Are you looking to discover some new sounds? Drop in at the Glass on any given night, and you'll be treated to a quality performance every time. In fact, that's always been the secret to their success.They only book the best, most interesting, acts on a consistent basis. They have a great sounding PA system, excellent bartenders and an unusual cast of music-loving regulars that will keep you coming back time and time again. Truly, it's one of West Virginia's best, if not the best, place to go for live music. - Shawn Beckner The Herald Dispatch

"In Charleston, this is the place to go if you like original music from both local and traveling bands. Over the years, we've had some memorable times here after Mountain Stage" Larry Groce - Mountain Stage

I tour all over the place and everybody knows about the Glass; it’s one of those kind of clubs. They’ve stuck to their guns when it comes to sticking with creative, original music and it definitely has a comfort zone for musicians when they walk in there. - Freekbass
