By day, Luthier’s Guitar Shop is a full service fretted instrument sales and repair shop. We have a large selection of used and vintage guitars, amps, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, and basses in stock. Click here to see some of our current stock. 

By night, Backstage Bar opens and hosts an entertainment venue with a variety of talent gracing our stage. We have 2 Open Mic nights a week, a dedicated karaoke night each week, a Comedy Showcase once a month, spoken word events as well as multiple acts a night otherwise! Check out our Calendar for what’s happening tonight!

The businesses at Luthier’s Co-Op promote a safe and welcoming space for all. We ask that you respect our mission and keep negative and divisive comments to yourself so that every person can enjoy themselves while patronizing or working at our establishment.
