Located on Charlottesville’s Historic Downtown Mall, The Southern Café & Music Hall opened in 2009 in the former location of The Gravity Lounge and has been the leading club level music venue in Charlottesville since that time.
The Southern has two distinct portions of the business: The Music Hall and The Café. The Music Hall offers world class sound and professional lighting with a capacity of 300+ while playing host to local, regional and national touring acts of all genres nearly 150 times per year. The Café offers traditional Southern inspired fare for lunch and dinner 5 days per week, specializing in smoked meats. The kitchen is always open for business during shows.
