So as it turns out The Parlor is literally a very small pizza parlor. It is nestled in a very cool vintage area of North Loop Ave. You’d miss it if you didn’t know it was there. In the venue itself is a small area for performers. It struck me that this is a place where an aspiring local or unknown performer may want to start doing shows. It is not so much a destination spot for bands, that I could tell. I did enjoy a slice of their pizza and got a chance to peruse The Chronicle while I waited for the early show (6pm) to start. My favorite part of this place was it’s great outside patio. Since the inside only has ceiling fans, no AC, I actually preferred sitting out here. It would be great to see music outside too. An aside, they also serve beer here.
