The bar will feature live music every night of the week with their Funk N’ Stay Up concert series beginning at 2:30am after the 11 o’clock shows end and proceeding on till the sun light comes shining down on Oak street. From late-night shows that go till sunrise every night, to legendary collaborations that have never been seen before, both musicians and fans know that once the sun goes down on the Fairgrounds, the Maple Leaf Bar is the place to be!!!
