Live Entertainment

Wildwood’s vibrant bar scene features top notch live entertainment by local musicians from 8:30 pm to 11:30 pm every Friday and Saturday night. It’s a great way to cap off a special night after a relaxing Wildwood dinner. Or just a late night stop for a date or to hook up with friends and neighbors.

Our featured artists cover a pretty wide range of musical genre – from jazz to pop rock. Requests are generally welcome.
