The Acoustic Café has developed from the successful Acoustic Routes concerts
. We create a “coffee house” atmosphere on the top floor at CB2 and if you like you can enjoy the excellent food and drink in the restaurant while listening to some fine acoustic music. Sometimes the gigs will take place in CB2's basement. The gigs are run by resident singer/songwriter Bernard Hoskin.

Cambridge Acoustic Nights are also running gigs at CB2. You can find information about these at:

tel. 07971 299659, for information about the gigs only.
