Hey there, time traveller!

The Crystal Hotel has stood on its current site for more than 130 years — it was first built to welcome travellers from the nearby train station. Plenty of traditions have come and gone and many more changes have been seen over the years, but one tradition that has gone on for at least a decade is live music from the hotel’s pub. Country and honky-tonk, maybe even a little classic rock, can be heard each Saturday afternoon as old friends — the demographic is decidedly on the grey side — meet each week to dance, chat, sip a beer and enjoy the tunes. The weekly sessions are also open mike, meaning anyone with a song to sing can also take part.
