At the Door

  • Unsold tickets will be available at the door on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The fee for buying at the door is $2 per ticket. This fee directly supports Caffè Lena, a non-profit organization.
  • As soon as a show sells out we will record an announcement on our voicemail. If the voicemail does not announce the show as sold out, there will tickets available when the doors open a 1/2 hour before showtime.
  • Doors open for ticket sales a ½ hour before showtime. Please do not arrive earlier.

Don’t Have a Credit Card?

  • You are welcome to pay by check but we need to receive the check at least one week prior to the show. Just write it out to Caffè Lena for the exact amount of the tickets and include a note with the show name and date, the number of seats you’re paying for, your name and phone number.

Do All Shows Require Tickets?

  • Advance tickets are not available for Open Mics and Emerging Artist Breakout shows. Tickets for these performances may be purchased at the door for no added fee.
