Much like the multiple name changes of P. Diddy (Puff, Puffy, Sean Combs), Avant Garden has undergone a similar metamorphosis. The renovated house, previously served under various pseudonyms The Mausoleum and Helios, has now graduated to the bohemian hipster jungle that it is today. The bar holds strong to its title as the Montrose area's artistic playground for the young. The two story bar hosts a slew of indie and local performers in areas of poetry, art, music and even dance. Sit in for the soulful strumming of an indie heart throb singer-songwriter as you sip on a glass of merlot or trademark fruit infused liquor. After a refreshing performance, join the smokers on the patio and absorb the sights and sounds of Montrose.
