What You'll Get
Today's Groupon to Eddie's Attic gets you $25 worth of succulent small plates, burgers, and beer for $12 at the popular rooftop-grill component of this renowned music venue. Hit up the rooftop to grab dinner and drinks before slipping into the listening room for a show (Eddie's has featured many big acts, including the Indigo Girls, India.Arie, and the Black Crowes) or gather with your fellow groupies to gush about your favorite chords (E-minor is so 1993). Though your Groupon is not valid toward concert tickets, you don't have to go to a show to enjoy food, drinks, and harmonious conversation with friends beneath the stars.
The rooftop grill at Eddie's Attic is a spacious home for outcast smokers, music listeners and makers, and former Trivia Bowl captains. Beneath the covered rooftop patio, heaters and red wines keep patrons warm during the winter, and a cold brew quenches a lingering thirst during the summer. Gather with friends around a casual table full of small plates ($7.94 each, $20 for three). Try mouthwatering cream-cheese-stuffed mushrooms (battered in Sweetwater 420), Jack Daniels baked brie (with brown-sugar pecans and crostini), and green-tomato napoleon (with red-pepper jam and goat cheese), and wash it down with one of Eddie's seven draught beers. With beers like Stella Artois ($5.14), Guinness Stout ($5.14), Terrapin India Brown Ale ($5.14), and Yuengling ($4.21) on tap, and bottled offerings like Fat Tire New Belgium ($5.14) and Strongbow Dry Cider ($5.14), it's easy to find a cold brew to complement your meal, and six cold brews might even let you compliment your mother-in-law.
The menu features fresh and tantalizing twists on traditional bar foods, such as the attic burger (1/2 pound of beef with tomato, spinach, and crispy onion on an onion roll, $7.48) or a portobella burger (grilled jumbo caps, zucchini, mozzarella, roasted red pepper, mixed greens, tomato, and crispy onion, $7.48) with sweet potato fries ($4.21). Tempt your taste buds with a quesadilla (with pork or chicken, jack and cheddar cheeses, pico de gallo and sour cream, $7.48), or try one of the Attic's weekly specials (fish tacos with fried tilapia, napa cabbage, pico de gallo, and remoulade, $8.99). If you're after something lighter, try a crisp Thai salad (with napa cabbage, wontons, cucumbers, and sesame-mandarin dressing, $7) with a glass of wine by the glass ($7.01–$8.41).

Eddie’s Grandma’s Attic
Eddie’s Attic is much, much more fun than Eddie’s Grandma’s Attic, which houses a jumble of wonders and antiquities long hidden from the sight of man. A complete list of these treasures would drive any sane person to turn themselves inside-out and crawl into the microwave, but here is a partial rundown:
- life-sized sculpture of Paul Harvey constructed from packets of Sweet’N Low
- authentic tape recording of Franklin Roosevelt cussing out a bird that took a piece of toast from his plate
- phosphorescent cats that have evolved to survive without sunlight
- 200 carnival kewpie dolls
