Imurj is a meeting ground for artists, musicians, and patrons of all walks of life. We welcome everyone into our space to enjoy our community. All we ask is that you bring an open mind, respect for other guests, and a love for arts.

Before you Visit

Because we are located underground downtown, We want our guests to be prepared for parking and accessibility.

Imurj is committed to providing accessibility options to all patrons and guests. Imurj has an outdoor elevator to assist patrons with movement disabilities to access the building.

Please keep in mind that the venue frequently has loud music, stimulating light shows, and dimly lit areas. Service animals are welcome, but pets are not permitted.

For questions regarding additional accessibility accommodations, please email


Like most downtown venues, street parking is best. Street parking is free after 6 pm, and all day on weekends. There are also various parking decks in the area.

Imurj does not have a designated parking area. We do not own the parking lot directly adjacent to the entrance. If you park there, you are at risk of being towed or booted at your expense.

If you are an artist or musician performing at imurj, email for information on equipment load-in.

All Ages Venue

Imurj is a bar and venue that hosts a wide variety of events. While most events are open to all ages, there are some that may not be family friendly. If an event is explicitly not family friendly, we will advertise that fact accordingly. Otherwise, we do our best to moderate content without limiting the creative expression of our artists. If you have questions regarding the content of an event, please email

For ticketed shows and some select events, we charge a $3 cover for under 21 attendees.
