❤️ this room? Take in some shows while you can - Hideaway Cafe @ 1756 Central - the end of an era

I wanted to share some news with you regarding the Hideaway Cafe’s future. First, and right to the point, our landlord will not be renewing our lease. This gives us until May 2022 in our current location with the last booked shows likely happening in April, so get in while you can to experience this room.  As you might guess, we’re all devastated - simply put.

7 Years

It's our big day again. 7 Years!! Wow. It's a big one every year because it's still a bit of a shock to me that the Hideaway even exists let alone is able to celebrate 7 years of music-making, with me somehow at the helm. We've had so many incredible moments over the years, so many friendships. Sometimes I sit alone at the bar late night and run the reel. I'm incredibly grateful for this place. So many talented friends have paved the way and I just want to say thank you to each of you. I wish everyone of you could walk through these doors today so we could raise a glass to the good...
