Live music and lunchtime crowds define this alternatively hip lesbian bar.. The Bar
During the day, lunchtime revelers pack it in while take-out orders of home-cooked meals fly out with hungry haste. At nighttime Babe's becomes what Richmonders hope, fear and imagine it to be: an alternatively hip lesbian bar. The beauty of this place is that every type of lifestyle is welcome--as one of the city's best places to see live music, it's a shame for anyone to be excluded.

The Live Music Scene
Think Babe's is too small to attract a crowd? Think again. The main bar area has the typical booths and tables, but another oversized room holds a stage and has enough room for a large number of live music fans. Regardless of your lifestyle, you'll feel comfortable in this smoky, relaxed but loud spot. The bar is no-nonsense, clean and attracts everyone from hard-core lesbians to straight-laced music lovers.
