Patios + Margaritas = Bliss

The Waypost was founded in April of 2006 and is the oldest bar on North Williams Avenue. It was designed to create a local hangout with a focus on live music, community, creativity, and service.

Chuck, our unofficial mascot

The Waypost is a bar and venue with an intimate atmosphere, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, great food and delicious drinks. Our southwestern street food inspired menu will keep you coming back for more. We specialize in signature margaritas and proudly have a line of our own infused liquors.

Come by to listen to a local band, play pub trivia or just socialize with friends. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Upcoming shows


Follow us on Instagram to keep up to date with upcoming shows!

Please come in Sundays to talk to Brenton if you'd like to get something on the books.

Chilled out and intimate musical performances are preferred for the sake of our simple space. Our shows must end by 11pm Fridays and Saturdays, and because we're in a residential zone, we must honor decibel restrictions after 10pm weekdays. Also, for licensing reasons, performers need to refrain from performing cover songs. If you have questions, just ask Brenton during the booking process. The Waypost has a PA with microphones, cables, stands, and a piano at your service.

We also love to host films, lectures, teach-ins, puppet shows, dance parties, DJs, prophets, and poets.

For all events, we will display a donation box, wherein you, as the lucky audience member, have the opportunity to contribute a suggested donation to the craft and traveling expenses of your entertainers.

To reiterate, WE ARE NOT BOOKING DIGITALLY. To schedule music, a screening, lectures, or any other event, please come in and speak with Brenton on a Sunday.
