Music and Nightlife

In the 1980s, bands took advantage of the downtown's cheap rehearsal space and lowbrow venues like Munchies, the Mayfair, and the Haven Coffeehouse. But the music scene really took off in 1996 with the opening of the Glass House Concert Hall. Brainchild of southland promoters Perry and Paul Tollett (founders of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival), the Glass House became a nationally recognized proving ground for emerging alt rock musicians. In 2009, the Fox Theater Pomona reopened as a concert hall featuring nationally touring bands. Smaller clubs and bars also proliferated, offering everything from ranchero to hip-hop to drag shows. Hundreds of acts now rehearse, record or perform in downtown Pomona every year.
