The music scene in Pittsfield lives up to it’s reputation as the entertainment heart of the Berkshires with many of the downtown bars featuring live music several nights a week and the Colonial Theatre headlining concerts and performers for every taste. Enjoy dinner, an appetizer, a craft beer or cocktail before or after the show or while taking in the sounds. In season, many of the restaurants feature outdoor entertainment on their patios.
