Welcome to The Hideaway Cafe & Recording Studio, an original music venue offering craft beer & wine and a simple, yet mouthwatering menu of flatbreads, pizzas, salads and sandwiches. Come catch an original (often live-recorded) showcase from the most talented local & nationally touring musicians.

We are open Wednesday-Saturday (with special events likely to show up on any other given calendar day). Every Wednesday is our Blues Jam hosted by TC Carr (1st & 3rd Wednesdays) and Betty Lou Fox (2nd & 4th Wednesdays). Every Thursday offers up our award winning Open Mic Night, aka "Living Room Live" Songwriters' Night hosted by John Kelly and featuring local singer/songwriters and inviting newcomers to the music scene and seasoned veterans alike to offer up their original material. Come sign the list and share your ORIGINAL songs or join the audience in taking in St Pete's finest display of musicianship and collaboration. Fridays and Saturdays are dedicated to ticketed showcase events. Be a part of history in the making as many of these events turn into live recordings for our artists and oftentimes, if you stick around, the evening will end with an intimate "guitar at the bar" session with the artist(s). Whatever the case, it is the most up close and intimate experience you can find with musicians sharing their gift with a truly appreciative audience. Doors open at 6PM so come early to grab a good seat, a bite to eat and toast to good music with good friends. On Wednesday and Thursday, music starts at 7:30. On Friday and Saturday, the show starts at 8. Check hideawaycafe.biz or our Facebook events tab for details. And come support original music in this great city of ours!
