Warming up winter at the Wharf
Dark nights have been lit up in Edgartown this winter by the musical sights and sounds coming out of the Wharf Pub. In the two years that he's owned the establishment, Will Coogan has steadily cultivated a musical roster that provides Islanders with the chance to see local talent in a comfortable, intimate setting.

Musical artists perform in the rear bar area, apart from the dining area. With its rich wooden interior and subdued lighting, the area is at once casual and distinctive. The room seems equally at home hosting blues-flavored country and full-tilt rock and roll.
The Wharf Pub is located on Lower Main Street in Edgartown. For more information, call 508-627-9966.
