The Hotel Café is the place to see up and coming musicians before they break through. What began as a coffee shop, has become an intimate performance space showcasing acoustic-based songwriters.
In the early days, the cafe’s steamers and blenders could only be run between songs so as not to drown them out.

In 2004, the club acquired space next door and underwent a much-needed expansion. Numerous artist have graced the stage well before hitting stardom. Such artist includes Sara Bareilles, Anna Nalick, Gin Wigmore and most notably Grammy Award winning artist Adele.
