The Broad Street Cafe in Durham ~ Great Music and People!

Last night my wife and I made a visit to the Broad Street Café in Durham. Its website describes the café as a “full-service restaurant, bar and entertainment venue”. In many ways the café feels like community anchor as its customer base seems like a great mix of people of all ages. The crowd regularly includes people from older couples, college aged students, to families with young children. We have been to the café before and were really looking forward to grabbing some drinks and catching some live music. They serve many local beers on tap including Raleigh’s own Big Boss brews as well as Durham’s local Triangle Brewery beers. My personal favorite is the Triangle Winter White (a traditional Belgian Wheat Beer). They have a full menu of salads and sandwiches and they specialize in wood fired pizzas that come from a brick oven you can view from the bar.

Broad Street typically has music performances 5 nights a week ranging in styles from bluegrass to Jazz. They have a nice size stage for the performers and seating is spread out enough that you have your choice of being closer to the stage or in the back of the restaurant where you can more easily have a conversation. A regular on Sundays, and performing on the night of our visit was the Aaron Mills Project. A jazz/funk trio group featuring keyboard, drums and Aaron Mills on the electric Bass. Listening to their funky jazz jams was great. Later in the evening they welcome other musicians from the audience to join them onstage to jam so bring your instrument along if you go on a Sunday!
