The Sunset is a music venue that hosts mostly local artists, but we’re here to talk about the front bar area, which goes by “Betty’s Room.” Even though lamps are blaring and guitars are screeching next door, Betty’s Room is a calm dive to grab a few beers or well drinks with friends. The whole space is decorated with vintage board games and red lighting, and the best part is that your eardrums will be safe.
