GreenHouse Restaurant & Bar serves as a venue for jazz and other local musicians. We’ve had everything from Led Zeppelin and Radiohead cover bands to Paul Slavens. From the Pete Wiese Quintet to improv jams creating a soundtrack to video games, but first and foremost we feature live jazz,giving the fantastic musicians from UNT and TWU a venue to show off their chops.
