Since we opened our doors in 1976, The Press Room has been a bastion of music, poetry, literature, and food within the Seacoast community. While we grow with Portsmouth, we also pride ourselves on some of our oldest traditions- the Tuesday night jazz jams, the Friday night Irish sessions, Beat Night are all embedded in who we are. In an iPod age, we’re proud to host live music every night of the week- the musicians who play become our friends, our family. Come see for yourself, we’ll be happy to see you.
