Tressa’s in Asheville is a fave spot of many people I know. I guess they just have a great atmosphere including both the owners and staff having great balanced attitudes, the perfect blend of music, great bartenders, and the crowd she has built up over the years is everything they need for a very successful night. The first level is usually jumping with a live band, awesome cocktails, and great people. The GateKeeper is none other than “Skull” himself. Angie is always quick to assist with a great attitude, Terri is alway prompt and overseeing everything, Smittie practically lives there and has a great time with everyone. The second level is a little more toned down, and the vibe was mellow with the man himself, Darryl Mack, handling dozens of clients by himself and very dedicated to that if I may say. They have a nice back room on the 2nd level where you can meet for a more private discussion… so the place is kind of like going to hang out at a home away from home for some of us (wonder if she has free wifi, lol). This building is a classic!
Tressa is definitely a great Owner Operator. I sit there and watch her work and blend all of the time, and she is one of the best actual business owners in Asheville that gets out there with us, the people, and carefully guides the whole vibe of the evening! Thanks Tressa… for having such a great nightlife spot in Asheville North Carolina, and for making your customers feel like family. www.Tressas.com
