WELCOME

Oh, hey there!  If you're like us, you're always seeking new music and unique experiences, but couldn't quite find what your were looking for in Dayton, Ohio.

So we decided to take the matter into our own hands and created The Brightside Music and Event Venue!

We're a free-spirited and welcoming space for genuine people.  Our mission is simple - to bring people together to dance, celebrate love, enjoy art, and build stronger community bonds…and have a good time while doing it!

The memories we create together are why we are here.

Plan your visit...
