Classy night out at The Copper Top

Editor’s note: Lorri Kohlmeister, one of three partners who own The Copper Top Lounge in downtown Grass Valley, talks about her popular dance-and-music venue. The partners also own Pete’s Pub Style Pizza up the street.

We are a full-service, sophisticated cocktail and music lounge.

We offer an intimate space with a beautiful atmosphere and amazing libations and food where we host private events, weekly live music, poetry nights, special performances and private meetings.

No one else in Nevada County is doing what we do!

The Copper Top is warm and welcoming and provides a unique, comfortable atmosphere with artwork from local artists, housemade cocktails and a great wine list featuring local and international wines.

Our music lineup is a blend of many genres you may not find at other venues. Customers say it “feels like we are in a friend’s living room.”

We now offer day use for meetings and private events. We also offer a full menu from Pete’s Pub Style Pizza and have a new Web site.

We love making the community feel at ease in our space and bringing in high-quality music, drinks and food.

Overcoming the reputation of past businesses in our location. Also, we are not easy to find.
