always wins this category because it's the only club that makes "acoustic music" its full-time mission. But, now in its second year of new ownership, acoustic is taking on a broader meaning. Acts recently spotted at the Attic were playing everything from jazz to hip-hop. One singer/songwriter was even spotted doing a strip tease on stage. But the final result here is purely aural: Due to a superior sound system and strategic booking, the Attic is still the best listening room in the city.
