Washington D.C.’s All-American Live Music Destination

At Pearl Street Warehouse, rock, country, folk, soul, bluegrass, rhythm and blues acts from around the country take the stage nightly, offering every seat in the house a front-row music experience.

Pearl Street Warehouse was developed by Nicholas Fontana, Bruce Gates and Henry Gandy, principals and founders of Cantina Marina, a DC waterfront dock bar and restaurant that’s been a fixture on the Southwest Waterfront for over 14 years

Beyond their longtime Southwest Waterfront tenure, the founders bring their love of live music and classic American food to Pearl Street Warehouse.

Gates has partnered with Gandy in Warehouse Records, an independent record label of emerging artists from Nashville and other music cities. Fontana, a longtime D.C. restaurant owner, thanks his Austin roots for influencing his love of food and music with an “Americana” flair.

With a nod to their roots and beloved music towns across the country, Pearl Street Warehouse provides an unparalleled music experience no matter the kind of show.  You’re never more than 25 feet from musical genius.

“We provide an exciting small music venue in a relaxed atmosphere,” says Bruce Gates. “Pearl Street Warehouse is about celebrating the vibrancy of American music,” adds Nick Fontana.
