Club and live music venue in Arkansas. Although live shows on a regular basis began in the early 70′s, many loyal locals recall social events, dances, and music out on the old patio as far back as the 1930′s. George's was the first bar to integrate in the late 50′s, the first bar in Northwest Arkansas to offer color television, and the first pizza delivery service in Northwest Arkansas. We house an extensive library of University of Arkansas Yearbooks dating back to 1906, and often ask patrons to sign our yearbooks.
