Founded in 1960, Caffè Lena is the oldest continually running coffee house in the United States and widely recognized as the oldest continuously operating folk music venue as well.
World-class Entertainment for All
Today, Caffè Lena is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in a renovated 19th century building in Saratoga’s historic downtown. Lena’s renovations enabled continuing their celebrated programming for decades to come, created 100% handicap-accessibility to the second floor performance space, and brought the listener and artist experience in line with the club’s international reputation.
Caffè Lena is dedicated to presenting deserving talent regardless of fame and their diverse programming sets the stage for musical discovery year-round. No matter the show, guests are promised world-class performances just feet away.
“One of my favorite music venues! Intimate venue with top talent and tons of cool history. Audience and volunteer staff always really care about the music.”
