Skully's Music Diner

The Venue

Skully’s has been a staple in the Short North for the past 16 years and it remains a prime spot for live music and dance parties to this day. They have a solid food menu and full bar too making it a one stop shop for your night out. The venue has a diner in the front, a large stage with a spacious viewing area, and large patio space out back.

Skully’s hosts an eclectic mix of shows from both local and touring acts as well as themed dance parties (these usually get pretty packed and rowdy) and special events. It’s a great sounding venue that offers up the vibes and feel of a club.


You can learn about their booking process and requirements in great detail on their booking page. Here you’ll also find a submission form for booking inquires. Celebrity Etc. and Bravo Artist also do some of the booking for Skully’s. If you’re interested in jumping on the bill for a show being put on by one of these two companies, it might be worth your while to reach out to them directly.
