The Needle Vinyl Tavern
From the minds that birthed the Haven Social Club comes a 400-person venue in the old CKUA building. It features bands at every Happy Hour. 10526 Jasper Ave., theneedle.ca

The Aviary
The Artery took flight and former owner/operator Phil Muz is set to recapture the magic on 111 Ave., where you can expect a return of alt-rock, folk and all other genres. (Opening in 2017.) 9314 111 Ave., facebook.com/artery.edmonton

Stage 104
Formerly the Burg restaurant, this upstart blends craft cocktails, upscale casual fare by chef Mariano Rodriguez (formerly with Niche) and live music every weekend. 10190 104 St., twitter.com/stage104yeg

9910
If you enjoy the DJs at the Common, you’ll love what’s going on in their basement-turned-into music venue for touring electronic, punk, rock and folks acts. 9910 109 St., 99ten.ca

The Chvrch of John
Denizen Hall introduced its cover band shows to surprising success, so why not repeat the live music success downstairs? The new venue hosts original local and touring acts. 10260 103 St., thechvrchofjohn.com

Bohemia
It’s not brand new, but with Cara Carson overtaking management and Craig Martel of Wunderbar on bookings, Bohemia has been reborn. 10217 97 St., artmuzak.ca
