There are so many hidden gems in Little Rock, The Afterthought Bistro being one of them. The Afterthought is located in the Heights and every Tuesday they have a Jam Session that is….TOTALLY FREE.
That’s right. There is absolutely no charge for the jam session every Tuesday. It is hosted by Carl Mouton and local musicians and singers drop by to play. The energy in this place is amazing and there is a sense of family here. Everyone is made to feel welcome.
This is a great setting for a date, a night out with the girls, or even go by yourself because you might run into someone that you know. It is totally free. Only have to spend money if you want to eat or drink!!
(Above is my sister, myself and Tiko Brooks enjoying ourselves at The Afterthought)
They have a full menu and their food is very delicious and affordable. They serve hard liquor as well as wine and the bartenders are wonderful (so don’t forget to tip them) .
Jam Session starts at 8 PM every Tuesday. And in case you forgot…
