The Southern Cafe & Music Hall combines the best of two worlds – food and music. While primarily a music venue, the Southern does offer fare like sandwiches, salads, and fried appetizers. Hosting some of the hottest local bands, the Southern is small and intimate, with a capacity of 200. It’s easily one of the most popular live music venues in Charlottesville, a place where locals love to relax. Numerous late night bars on the downtown mall can warm you up before a trip to the Southern.
