Isis is a concert venue with an accompanying bar and restaurant. Many of the artists and performers we feature are recognized national or regional acts. We also present new artists that have not yet received full national attention as well as the talented artists and bands in and around Asheville. You can expect bookings for a wide range of music genres. On our Main Stage we have two different styles of shows, from seated dinner cabaret style shows with a capacity of 150 people to standing room shows with the capacity of 450 people. The hall features a balcony and upstairs lounge, bar, and bathrooms.
Our upstairs Lounge has a capacity of 5o and is always an entirely seated show. These shows are typically earlier in the evening and feature more acoustically driven acts of all genres. The Lounge was the projection room of the original theatre and now has a full bar, intimate stage setting and a baby grand piano.
Our dining room is a very live space with lots of natural light with a long bar where you can also enjoy our full dinner menu. Any given night you can hear the live music happening on MainStage throughout the building, including the patio. Large windows face Haywood Road in front with a nice open view of West Asheville. Executive Chef Chris Jones is joined by a great crew in the kitchen. These guys are responsible for creating dishes using seasonal products and utilizing local produce whenever possible. You can grab a $12 locally sourced burger or enjoy a petit tender steak. Our menu works for most any mood you’re in.
Every Tuesday evening Isis holds our Tuesday Bluegrass Sessions featuring some of the best bluegrass musicians in Asheville. The session is hosted by a rotation of the great players we have in town. Come have a drink, a meal, listen
