Remembering the Greats

Wisdom is starting a new concept called 'Remembering the Greats' where we will pay homage to musical icons on their day of birth. We will play their work in the bar and, when available, documentaries and movies. Imagine walking into a bar of complete strangers, but realizing with a song that you are not amongst strangers, but in a space of like-minded fans all paying homage. This is the vibe we hope to build. Come drink with us in their honor.
