The Cafe is great. It's small, and it's easy to hear the bands. You can hang out in there for free, on the big couch or the bar, or one of the booths even if you can't afford the show. The food and drinks are pretty mediocre, but the venue itself is not too shabby. The sound is excellent, the lighting needs some work, but the greatest part is that even if the show sells out, it's small enough that even the big acts seem really intimate on such a small stage. Definetly check out the shows at this place.
