In its role as a neighborhood bar & grille
and meeting place for multi-ethnic, multi-generation Central Square,
the Cantab Lounge provides stages for many kinds of music and the spoken word.

Tuesdays we have the best Bluegrass scene for miles around.

Wednesdays, there's a Blues, Jazz and Rock Jam Upstairs hosted by Joe Bellomo
and as always, a Poetry Slam downstairs in the Underground.

and Downstairs: Mickey Bliss presents Club Bohemia

Fridays and Saturdays
Upstairs: Various awesome dance bands
Downstairs: Mickey Bliss presents Club Bohemia
