• Geva Theatre, 75 Woodbury Blvd, 232-1366 - A very nice theatre, offering a choice from two different plays at any given time. Discounts are available for students and seniors.
• Comix Cafe, 3450 Winton Place Plaza, 424-5233 - Billed as the only comedy club in Rochester, the cafe provides both comics in the showroom and booze in the bar up front. Be warned, however, that attending a show requires both a ticket and a minimum amount of food purchased per person (or face a surcharge). While the food is reasonable in taste, the prices are pretty steep and can result in a high hidden cost.
• Water Street Music Hall, 204 N Water Street, 546-3887 - A wide variety of live music several nights out of the week. There is also a reasonably priced bar inside.
• BugJar, 219 Monroe Ave, 585 454-2966 - The walls display various works of art created by local artists, and the stage area/dance floor has an entire roomful of furniture arranged on the ceiling. Drink specials and live entertainment are featured here nightly, presenting popular local and national musical artists.
• Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 20 Windsor St, 325-4370 - A tiny theatre with seating just a few feet from the stage. It's best to call before hand to buy tickets and get directions.
• High Falls. Featuring a waterfall in the center of downtown, this is a nice area to walk around.
• Park Ave. There are a lot of great trendy shops in this district, and it's serviced by the RTS service. However, it's definitely not an entire day activity, and things close relatively early.
