Cake Shop is exactly what the name sounds like, a cafe with lots of delicious baked good. By night, though, Cake Shop turns into a cool live music venue. It has been a starting place for many bands and a remarkable music venue much appreciated by the fans of indie music. Cake Shop is quite popular with the musicians, so you will always find someone exciting in a line-up.
The atmosphere is quite relaxed and perhaps a tad dingy. The decor is decidedly un-plush. If you are looking for a buttoned-up kind of restaurant or a cute and frilly cupcake place, you may want to pass on this one. For a night out with friends and some great music, though, this is perfect. If your parties tend to end up with everybody craving hot chocolate and pastry, definitely stop by. It’s young, rock-n-roll and unruly. And they really do serve pastry in the early hours of the morning.
