There’s a real vibe here, too—squint a little, and it’s easy to pretend you’re in a North Beach bistro circa 1968, waiting for Joni Mitchell or Judy Collins or Joan Baez (or one of the other folky chick singers whose names begin with J) to perform.

    Purchase a 'signature' coffee cup and drink coffee for life--or until you lose/break your cup.

    Check out their open-mike night every Thursday at 7:30!!!!!! Incredible music in a unique environment.

  • Fiddler's D. on 08/27/12

    Every Thursday night is Open Stage Night - $3 admission, doors open at 6:30pm and we start drawing names from the hat at 7:30pm. 2 songs or eight minutes, whichever comes first.
