George’s Majestic Lounge: Best Venue for Concerts
It makes sense that the University of Arkansas would vote George’s Majestic Lounge the Best of Fayetteville for concert venues. For concertgoers, the venue is just a stone’s throw from the edge of campus, and George’s consistently books strong bands in the folk, blues, rock and country genres to perform. But the music bookings are, of course, very niche.
“I enjoy George’s as a venue, but they often do not have the type of music I enjoy,” said Clint Cunningham, a history major. “But they are one of the few venues that has managed to stay open through the years, and they have a good atmosphere.”
Many know George’s as “The King of Dickson Street, since 1927.” The venue boasts a rich history, having endured the changing of the eras, standing the test of time and maintaining a devoted clientele.
“George’s just pulls in some really great shows. For a guy like me, that’s the most important thing,” said Jonathan Hunter, an English major.
George’s reputation precedes it, but what has always separated George’s from its competitors is its willingness to adapt, and to change its facilities right alongside the changing interests of the public.
