Introducing B-Side, Fairport's New Music & Food Venue

Music, food, atmosphere, roof deck, full bar.  Fairport is in love with this new venue!  Located at 5 Lift Bridge Lane, B-Side is a great addition to the many outstanding restaurants/bars on Lift Bridge Lane.  B-Side offers a nice assortment of appetizers, from the traditional (chicken tenders; spinach and artichoke dip) to the unexpected – poutine, reuben fritters, fried cheese curds.  If you need something a bit more substantial, the small but varied menu of sandwiches, salads, burgers, and paninis promises that every one in your group will find something delicious to eat (vegetarian options as well).  The website lists the music schedule (; it appears that live music is offered every night (closed Sunday and Monday).  This is a great new addition to Fairport, especially as the weather is warming and that roof side deck is beckoning!
