Located in beautiful downtown Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Eccentric Café, located next to the Bell's General Store, is home to a unique offering of craft beer, live music, entertainment, delicious food and more.

Any given time, we have about 30-40 different beers on tap. Many are exclusive to the Cafe and are brewed right next door at our original brewery - just look for the flying eccentric guy next to the beer names on the Draft Board when you visit.

Take some time to look around. We hope to see you soon.

Beer to go: The Bell's General Store, located right next door to the Cafe, now features a Growler Station with up to four options. Empty growlers are $18 and currently, we are only able to fill Bell's growlers (we will fill most other vessels soon though). There is also the Eccentric Cafe only 750ML bottle series, not to mention beer by the bottle, six-pack and case.

Firkins: Stop by and see what's on the beer engine.

Bike locks: Need to borrow one? Check with the bartender.

Wi-Fi: It's free. Check the Draft Board for the password

Marshall Crenshaw wsg Cris Jacobs ($20/$25)
Born near Detroit, Michigan, Marshall Crenshaw began playing guitar at age ten and he received his first break playing John Lennon in the off-Broadway company of Beatlemania. In 1987, he played Buddy Holly in the Richie Valens biopic “La Bamba.” While living in NYC, he recorded the single “Something’s Gonna Happen” for Alan Betrock’s Shake Records, which led to a deal with Warner Bros. His debut album, Marshall Crenshaw was acclaimed as a pop masterpiece upon its release in 1982 and established him as a first-rate songwriter, singer and guitarist. The record spawned the Top 40 single “Someday, Someway,” which rockabilly singer Robert Gordon covered and scored a hit with a year earlier, and other classics such as “(You’re My) Favorite Waste of Time,” “Whenever You’re On My Mind” and “Cynical Girl.” Over the course of a career that’s spanned three decades, 13 albums and hundreds of songs, Marshall Crenshaw’s musical output has maintained a consistent fidelity to the qualities of melody, craftsmanship and passion, and his efforts have been rewarded with the devotion of a broad and remarkably loyal fan base. Marshall Crenshaw has recently started releasing his music on a subscription based EP series available only on 10” vinyl and digital download. Each EP consists entirely of newly recorded, never-before-released material, encompassing a new original Crenshaw composition, a classic cover tune, and a new reworking of a time-honored Crenshaw favorite. Marshall is also kept busy touring around the country and hosting his radio show "The Bottomless Pit" every Saturday on WFUV.

G. Love & Special Sauce ($27.50adv/$30 day of)
Twenty years after the release of their self-titled debut and eight years since their last live performance together, the original lineup of G. Love & Special Sauce return with their first album in nearly a decade. Built on the trio’s signature hip-hop blues sound, Sugar finds vocalist/guitarist/harmonica player G. Love (aka Garrett Dutton), upright bassist James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott, and drummer Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens breathing new life into their groove-heavy, Chicago-blues-infused brand of stripped-down rock & roll. “The goal for the album was to make it really raw and immediate, with live takes and live vocals and everybody playing so that it all comes together in that intangible way,” says G. Love. “That’s what our music is all about.”

Aug 07, 2015 at Doors: 8pm, Show: 9pm
DC wsg Meagan McNeal, Alexandria Way, Lady Ace Boogie ($10)
An electrifying night of r&b, hip-hop, and neo-soul with a collection of incredible MI-based female performers.
