Cafes & Restaurants

Many cafes and restaurants host live music -- typically on weekends. At these businesses, the emphasis is on the food. But great live music can also be on the menu. At Undiscovered Music Network we only list those cafes and restaurants that host touring musicians playing original music -- not the more common guitarist playing cover tunes.
