Built in 1886 as a stagecoach stop on what is now Highway 154, the Cold Spring Tavern has maintained its reputation as a down-home, welcoming restaurant and entertainment venue for more than 100 years. Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the tavern stage is home to some of Santa Barbara’s most loved bands that play to crowds of well-fed listeners. And with a management team set on preserving the historical feel of the tavern, there’s just no place quite like it. This weekend’s shows are as follows:
Friday, June 8
Bob Aker Band CD release party 7-10 p.m.
Saturday, June 9
Mike Mann Band 2-5 p.m.; Pie 6-9 p.m.
Sunday, June 10
Tom Ball and Kenny Sultan 2-5 p.m.;
Teresa Russell and Cocobilli 5-8 p.m.
