The Abbey Underground (formerly known as the Boiler Room, located under the Abbey Inn, you can find the entrance on Mulberry Street) is a live music venue and bar just off the square, with live shows every night. The Abbey Underground is called the "underground" because it is literally located under the Abbey Inn Restaurant.

The Underground is a big, spacey, dungeon-esque bar where many diverse kinds of people get crunk.


Abbey Underground used to be "Boiler Room".  Before that, it was "Texas Jive", which was on Fry Street before the demolition of the block.  Texas Jive shut down and split into three businesses, Abbey Inn, Boiler Room, and TJ's Pizza.
