  • About

    The Crimson Moon Cafe is conveniently located on the historic Public Square of Dahlonega, Georgia. It is housed in the c.1858 ''Parker-Nix Storehouse'' - the second oldest building on Dahlonega's charming historic square. The building was operated as a traditional southern ''general store'' for nearly fifty years, but has been recently renovated to become the home of ''The Southeast's Most Intimate Music Venue''... The Crimson Moon Café.

    The nationally known listening venue and restaurant now offers a full service menu for breakfast/brunch, lunch and dinner - with an organic coffee house, beer, wine, and handcrafted cocktails! Live, multi-genre and mostly acoustic music is offered most Wednesdays through Sunday evenings as well as some weekend afternoons, with reserved stage-floor ticketed seating for most events. Patrons who wish to simply enjoy great food, conversation and atmosphere are invited to walk upstairs to enjoy the New Orleans style fresh air porch overlooking the square, two private dining rooms, or the 'step back in time' bar in the c. 1858 ''Half Moon'' saloon. For reservations for show seating, please visit www.TheCrimsonMoon.com or call 706-864-3982. For dinner reservations or special / group events please call 706.864.3982

    An all-female Alt-Country band from NY. ANTIGONE RISING set out to “play better than the boys and make sure their fans feel like family.” They a rich history and a kind of storybook arc to their career. They were the first band on Starbucks Hear Music Label and Lava Records where they achieved big success quickly. They have opened for The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Rob Thomas, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts,The Bangles, and The Indigo Girls. Antigone Rising’s music is a happy, upbeat blend of pop, rock and country and their live performances are a fun evening of incredible musicianship, soaring 3-part harmonies and witty banter. The band traveled to The Middle East and Vietnam as Cultural Ambassadors for the U.S. doing outreach programs, master classes and public concerts. ANTIGONE RISING recently launched Girls Rising, a nonprofit to inspire young girls to pursue non-traditional careers and educate all kids that it’s ok to play, think, act & be different.
