Nestled in the heart of downtown Montpelier, VT, Bent Nails Bistro orchestrates unforgettable evenings.

Our stage hosts not just musicians, but moments that resonate. Whether it’s an upbeat night dancing or fun with friends, this premier music venue hits all the right chords.

What a superbly delicious and quirky little place! We stopped by Montpelier to charge our car and came across the Bent Nails Bistro. The co-owner was friendly and served us fantastic European-inspired classics with an elevated and modern twist. Everything was perfect! We had ratatouille, the grilled aubergine sandwich, and spaghetti with homemade meatballs. I would have stayed the whole day just enjoying the cool vibe and menu….  This new bistro/bar is one of this gorgeous little capital’s main attractions!

“This Bent Nail Bistro is exceptional! We were impressed by the customer service,  decor, food, and comedy show. We enjoyed ratatouille,  croque monsieur, and carrot cake. The menu prices were reasonable, and the comedy show was free. Highly recommend it!”

“We came for the atmosphere and live music, but we will definitely be returning for the super yummy food, the atmosphere, and live music! Try their chilled soups and the soup with sausage and kale!!! We had the pot stickers and the spinach and artichoke dip — both of which are some of the best in town!! Sandwiches are made perfectly (the Caprese and the eggplant)!! You can tell that love is put into the bistro food here, and you won’t be disappointed!”
