The Lounge at World Cafe Live is a comfortable cafe featuring floor-to-ceiling windows, vibrant decor, and an intimate stage. As a neighborhood staple for over fifteen years, The Lounge welcomes diners and concertgoers alike with a seasonally rotating menu. Whether you crave a tasty snack or a three-course meal, The Lounge offers everything from eggplant fries to hearty salads to Southern-inspired entrees. The best in regional craft beers and spirits provide the perfect accompaniment. Make sure you save some room for our homemade desserts, too.

This unique space can accommodate up to 220 guests, and is ideal for watching your favorite performers up close and personal. Although we have many free shows, most evenings The Lounge is presenting a ticketed performance. Visit to view our full events calendar.
