The Quiet Storm Coffeehouse offers a welcome respite to the loud-rock-bands-and-smoky-bar music scene. An acoustic performance sounds just great with a cup of coffee.
The sofas, chairs and tables scattered throughout the place hold students, artistic-types and older rockers looking for a mellower hangout.
You are just as likely to catch a Middle Eastern music session here complete with belly dancing as you are a solo performer. Quiet Storm is also one of the few venues in town that still hosts open-mike poetry and fiction readings, every Tuesday.
Sunday-Thursday, 9:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-midnight. Music and poetry readings begin at 8 p.m. on Monday-Thursday; 9 p.m. on Friday-Saturday. Free (sometimes with a donation request for the band). No credit cards. Smoking section available.
Parking available on neigborhood streets.
