Lately, the crowds have been large at Delaney’s. Everyone loves the warm, friendly vibe of the lounge and it fills up fast. The next option is eating in the dining room and it’s nice for quiet, intimate meals, but the music is hard to hear. You can make reservations for the dining room, but with rare exceptions they don’t allow reservations for the lounge. My advice: get there early (6ish) if you are coming for the music.
Lounge reservations are allowed for those with special needs (wheelchairs, etc), or traveling long distances. Last night my brother Tom brought my mom up from Milwaukee to hear Doug and I – she asked for this for Christmas. Between playing for a packed house and having my mom and brother there, it was a very special evening.
