The Cave
452 W. Franklin St., Chapel Hill

(show on map)

The Cave is a long, skinny belowground bar with texturized molded-fiberglass walls and ceiling, like a cave (duh). It holds less than 100 people. They have live music 7 nights per week--everything from punk to country to jazz to blues to noise--and are 21+. Most nights there are two shows, one at 7:30ish, and a second starting between 10:00 and 11:00 p.m. (two different bands/sets of bands, that is, not just 2 sets by one band). The Cave is now a private club, which means they serve liquor in addition to their fine beer selection, and membership is necessary. It is also now owned by some of the folks who own/operate Slim's in Raleigh.
