Conumdrum Music Hall, 626 Meeting Street: 31 October 2015   4 comments

Posted at 1:12 am in closing










Conumdrum opened in the space formerly occupied by Bloomin' Idiots garden center, and based on the name, I reported it as a drumming studio when I did the closing for that business.

In reality, though I never got to check it out personally, it seems to have been a nice little eclectic music venue, and a five year run is not bad for a site neither in The Vista nor Five Points.

  1. I believe this was just down the street from Bill's Music Shop and Picking Parlor, which I have never been but hear a lot about. Meeting Street in West Columbia is known for this type of venue from what I understand.
    People my wife work with tell her how great the Picking parlor is to visit.

  2. I have driven by here a number of times and wondered whether or not it was still open. Surprised to see it only closed as recently as the end of October.

  3. Even though I never went to Conundrum it seemed like the kind of music venue Columbia was lacking. They were not afraid to book any genre of music no matter how eclectic it might be. They were also know to have open mic nights and a smattering of things such as spoken word, comedy and even film showings. I am surprised that it stayed open for five years considering how fickle Columbia is when it comes to music.

  4. I went to Conundrum once several years ago with a group of friends for Jazz night near Christmas. The performance consisted of a delightful quintet who put a most decidedly jazzy edge to Christmas music. I even met Terrence Young, a local jazz great, who was just hanging around the venue that night.
    According to my sources, Conundrum was mostly a labor of love and lost money. It was a venue too small and out of the way to draw any sort of crowd. I had driven by the place before and never knew that it was a music club. I don't think of West Columbia or Cayce as being entertainment destinations, an idea that many people share.
