  • FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED SEATING 

    Both shows on Monday are entirely first come, first served. Note that while The Bluebird has 90 seats, the songwriters who are performing can bring a guest, so we start the night with about 65-70 seats available.
     
    On Monday, our Open Mic runs from 6-9PM and we sign up 25 songwriters with an original song to play. Some of the most well-known songwriter/artists have performed on The Bluebird’s Open Mic.  For this show, we try to be good neighbors to our fellow retail businesses, and ask people not to line up in front of those businesses until 4:30PM.  That show has 25 performers and each one can bring a guest, so often we open doors with just shy of 40 seats.
     
    For the early shows on Tuesdays—Sundays, we keep the church pew area (about 10-12 seats total) open for first-come, first-served seating when doors open. For the late shows on Tuesdays—Sundays, we reserve almost every seat in advance and will seat from the walkup line only for any cancellations or no-shows. Do not hold spots in line for other people, every one that wants a walkup seat should be in line!

  • ACCESIBLE SEATING

    We have limited availability for accessible seating. We can accommodate up to 2 seats—an accessible seat and companion seat if we’re given at least two weeks’ notice. Please email info@bluebirdcafe.com.

  • SHHHH! POLICY

    The Bluebird is a listening room. Too much conversation distracts listeners and is disrespectful to the songwriters who form the backbone of our music community. We encourage talking before the show, between sets and after the show but ask that during the performances, to keep talking as low as possible.

  • AGE

    All shows are all-ages, however, you must be 21+ to sit at the bar.

  • WHAT IS “IN THE ROUND”?

    Our signature style has the songwriters in the center of the room, where they perform together, telling stories and accompanying each other. It’s a unique set up that allows the audience an up-close-and-personal experience of how songwriters create their music.

  • FOOD & DRINK

    We feature a full bar along with a varied menu of appetizers, hot & cold sandwiches and salads available until 10pm. We do offer limited options for gluten-free customers. View the food menu here and the drink menu here.

  • PARKING

    There is parking available directly in front of The Bluebird. Please do not utilize our neighbors’ parking lots unless their business is closed. They enforce towing—as does the AT&T Store on our other side.
