Music | Events

We want Cafe Zoë to be your fun place to come for happy hour and stay for whatever fun event is going on. You can expect Trivia every Wednesday night, "$3 Thursday" when bottled beers are $3 and draft beer is $5 all night, and live music every Friday night on a usual week. Other times, we are hosting fundraisers for local causes, knitting group meet-ups, community meetings, pop-up shops, and more.

We firmly believe that we book some of the best musicians of the Bay Area and beyond. Come see the local and touring acts. The musicians that have performed at the café range from anything to mellow acoustic to fast-paced rock and roll.

We are always looking for new musicians to come perform, please email with links to music if you’re interested in booking your band.

Cafe Zoë is turning 10 this Tuesday, June 19th. We are thrilled to reach this milestone and we're feeling so grateful to our community that has helped us get here.

Thank you, all. We appreciate you more than words can express.
