Unique, Historic Venue

Breathing in ideas, dreams, and possibilities
Breathing out music, poetry and stories
Caffè Lena has always been a place where people renew their faith in the power of music. They come up the stairs and enter a room where a world-class performer is only feet away from the audience, where they can see every movement of fingers on frets and feel a foot tapping rhythm on the stage.

Eight Remarkable Artists That Played At Caffè Lena Before They Hit It Big
Did you know that Ani DiFranco and Emmylou Harris performed at the historic venue?
Pretty much every Saratogian knows that Bob Dylan performed at Caffè Lena back in the early ’60s, just as he was beginning to kick off his legendary folk career. But Bob wasn’t the only one. According to Sarah Craig, Executive Director of Caffè Lena, most of the now famous musicians who have performed at the club weren’t famous when they first started performing there.
