The room itself holds as much history as any local venue in the Philadelphia or surrounding suburbs; from 1980 to 1994, the legendary 23 East Cabaret sat within the same walls, and hosted an infamous array of artists from The Dave Mathews Band, to Blues Traveler, Hootie & The Blowfish, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish, The Hooters, Joan Osborne and so many more. From 1996 to 2009, although the room became primarily a cover band venue, Brownies 23 East hosted national attractions such as Cheap Trick, Los Lobos, The Cherry Poppin Daddys, Merle Saunders, Vince Welnick, Melvin Seals, Steve Kimock, New Riders of The Purple Sage and more. We are proud to take on the challenge of bringing the former glory of the venue back to life.
