You know what sounds fun? Live music at one of the most historic locations in the Lake Tahoe area: an old ski lodge turned restaurant. Cottonwood Restaurant rests hilltop, overlooking historic downtown Truckee. In the cozy, dimly lit bar area you’ll enjoy a taste of Old Tahoe – and if you have a chance formally dine in the restaurant, gaze out at fantastic views of Truckee that skiers did years ago.
Every Thursday and Friday evening Cottonwood features FREE acoustic live music, which are highly popular among locals and tourists. Music begins in the fireplace room at 7pm, and reservations are highly encouraged at all times. Select libations and menu items are discounted as well. To reserve your table call 530.587.5711
