Sam’s gets the nod for regular live music on outdoor deck

Tiburon officials decided to give broad permission for Sam’s Anchor Cafe to host live music on its deck seven days a week.

The Tiburon Planning Commission voted 3-0 at a well-attended Jan. 23 meeting to grant a conditional use permit that lets the restaurant hold live outdoor music from 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and from 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Musicians would bring their own equipment for the music.

Conor Flaherty, who bought the restaurant from prior owners Steve Sears and Brian Wilson in 2017, said having live music on the deck can go a long way toward revitalizing downtown Tiburon and driving traffic to the restaurant during some of its slower times after 4 p.m.
