The building itself has a long history of entertaining. Originally a savings and loan, the building was purchased to create a two-story restaurant/lounge called the Hi-Hat. The chandelier that hangs over the main room today is a relic of the grand Hi-Hat. In 1975, Nector Rorris bought the building to create the infamous Nectar’s. The stage became legendary when a group of then-unknown local musicians known as Phish began to play regularly, sowing the seeds of their enormous following. Since then, the room has become Burlington’s preeminent live music lounge, and the home of what have got to be the world’s best gravy fries.
In 2003 Nector sold the business to the present owners and in April of 2012 the present owners purchased the entire building making sure the future of this landmark live music institution has a long successful future!
