COVID has unfortunately made its way to the Ted's crew. We will be closed Friday, January 28th - Sunday, January 30th as we isolate and follow all the appropriate protocols.

We both feel okay and are optimistic that we will be able to return for the Voice and the Pen showcase scheduled for February 2nd. We will keep everyone posted and update accordingly.

Both Friday and Saturday nights shows have been rescheduled and that information is updated on our website and FB pages.

Thanks for all the well wishes!

Our Story

Nestled at the west end of Castle Street right under the Cape Fear River Bridge, Ted’s is truly a one-of-a-kind music experience! Kelly (Ted) and Julia Jewell started the tradition back in 2010 and established the place as the ONLY live music listening room in Wilmington, NC. In 2019, Trent Harrison and Whitney Lanier of the local recording studio, Hourglass Studios, took over and continued bringing in local and regional musicians. Whether you are inside enjoying the live music with a cold beer or out on the back deck with a glass of wine enjoying a view of the river, Ted’s has a little something for everyone. Most folks tend to say it’s a place that “just feels like home.” We hope you’ll feel at home, too!
