You don’t become Carrboro’s living room without providing amazing music and art.

Music moves us at the Open Eye Cafe…we love to listen and share, & we love to give musicians a chance to be heard in our space.  Our Cafe is a great place for local artist to increase their listenership and broaden the reach of their sound.  For the listener there are few better places to catch amazing talent, both local & touring acts, with minimal effort!  Usually for free, you can stop in, check out a live act & enjoy a glass of wine or beer with friends in a relaxing atmosphere, without the need to be checked at the door or pop in the earplugs.  We offer varied musical styles from jazz & blues to celtic & folk/rock to Latin music to dance to!

Connecting with our artistic community is one of the reasons we opened the cafe.  We offer our walls to local and regional artists to show their work in a less constrained and conventional way.  Whether artist are interested in selling their work or not, our monthly installments are a way for artists to increase their exposure to a very large population, all the while helping us decorate our  Cafe with their fantastic work! You will see a wide variety of styles and media from month to month, and we are part of the monthly 2nd Friday Artwalk, where you can often meet the artist and talk about their work.
