Rude doorman...My girlfriend and I gave him a bill for the cover charge. He tells us the bill is counterfeit! I had just gotten the bill from Wells Fargo bank. Then he doesn't tells us that they have an ATM in the bar so we leave.
Good music, but terrible staff, and the place is a dump!
The Torch Club is the BEST!!. I have been a regular at "Da' Torch" for about 5 years & all other clubs in Sacramento pale in comparison! Marina, the owner, operates an excellent club with a very diverse group of regulars, an eclectic jukebox, stiff drinks, excellent security and huge variety of performers & bands with many different styles. Everything from swing, (The Hucklebucks), to old school funk, (Stacie Eakes, M0f0 Party Band & Mercy Me), to smoking hot Jimi Hendrix style guitar, (Jimmy Pailer) to rock with Battle of the Bands winner, (Nothin' Personal). However the Torch is famous for being "The Club" to hear live blues in Sacramento with performances from artists such as Johnny Guitar Knox, Terry Hanck, Lara Price, Aaron King, Mick Martin, Daniel Castro, Lara Price, John Lee H00ker Jr, Chris Cain, Janiva Magness, The Delgado Brothers, Shane Dwight & Mark Hummel - just to name a few. To me, the Torch is like "Cheers", a place where everyone knows your name. The crowd ranges from early 20's to old timers in their 70's, from local celebrities to state workers to conventioneers, everyone there to have a good time. As you can tell, I am a little biased, but check it out yourself & you will see I am telling the truth!
Bad management rude owner. Bad management rude owner........ .................. ............... ...... ............ ........... ....... ........ .... . .... ...... ..... ....... ........ ...... ...... ...... ... .. .. ........ ... .....
Some of the best times I have ever had were at the Torch Club! I love it!!!!.
Ahhh the Torch Club. I have nothing but praise for this fabulous place. The Blues Jam on Sundays is phenomenal. Stacie Eakes & the Superfreakes (sp) are the best! You can never go wrong with Ratatat Pat Balcom on the drums, his talent is amazing & he is truly a good guy!
I highly recomment this wonderful source of entertainment.
Brava to Marina for a job well done!
Patriotic midtown blues dive bar with a retro neon sign and a good sense of humor..
First established in 1939, the club moved from its original L Street location in early 2000. Expect a mix of jovial charm and somber war memorials--think W.C. Fields posters and "if it's too loud, you're too old" placards in the same room with P.O.W. flags and personal tributes to Vietnam vets. Before the music gets started, the jukebox favors Otis Redding and Robert Cray with nods to Patsy Cline. Diehard music fans mostly in their 30s and 40s stake out seats, while the uninitiated often wander in after dinner at next-door Zen Toro or before dancing at nearby Elements.
Sacto's blues royalty, including Arbess Williams and Johnny "Guitar" Knox, have graced the fake torch-flanked stage. More recently, acts like Little Charlie and the Nightcats and local bar band the Beer Dawgs have had patrons stompin' and singin' the blues.
Reminds you of another time. Reminds you of another time. Great live music and jukebox.
