What's Majestic? What Makes Us Tick?


Originally a park next to Bill Neumeier's first restaurant, Coney Island, 817 Garrison Avenue began its legacy as a beer garden in the Summer of 1994. Local musicians performed in the Beer Garden the first couple of seasons, under a couple of clamp-lights with colored bulbs hanging from one of the oak trees! In the summer of 1995, the Beer Garden promoted its first national touring act on a make-shift stage. Over the years, the location continued to enhance the stage and beer garden and became known as the legendary Neumeier's Rib Room & Beer Garden. In 2008, Neumeier's Rib Room moved to 424 Garrison Avenue and the site became a live music venue. The unique juke joint introduced Fort Smith to countless impressive artists, such as Monte Montgomery, Paul Thorn, Theresa Anderson, Bugs
Henderson, Ian Moore and Grammy winner Keb Mo. In 2015, Neumeier passed the torch to Pam Kelley
who branded the locale as the Sound Room.


May 2019 began a new era for the legendary 817 Garrison Avenue property. Fort Smith residents Trent Goins and Steve Clark, along with Sarah Sparks-Diebold, united to expand entertainment on historic Garrison Avenue and continue the resurgence of downtown Fort Smith. The unique group shares a passion for downtown revitalization and cultural arts while bringing different strengths to the project. The property underwent a noteworthy renovation, starting with increasing the size of the stage and opening the mezzanine area providing a gathering place atmosphere for live music entertainment and private, corporate charitable events.
