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

Houndmouth wsg Legal Immigrants ($20adv/$23dos)
In the last four years, Houndmouth have learned what it means to be a band. On their second album, Little Neon Limelight, they wear that wisdom like a badge of honor. Less than a half-decade ago in the small Indiana city of New Albany, four pals were crafting tunes on their own, with few ambitions of turning those songs into a spectacle. That all changed when these friends crossed paths, and joined forces. Matt Myers, Shane Cody, Katie Toupin, and Zak Appleby became the drums and keys, guitars and harmonies of Houndmouth, and those personal numbers became the irrepressible core of an outfit turned magnetic.

May Erlewine ($10-Seated Show)
May Erlewine comes from a family of artists and musicians. Early on she was exposed to music (and people) of all kinds. May was home-educated, came up singing and while still just a teenager hitchhiked all across North America playing her music, riding freight trains and busking on the streets. In her travels, May came to know the land and the pulse of the people. Her songwriting is treasured and her music connects authentically with everyday folk. The sounds and influences you'll hear in her music range from good old fashioned folksongs and country swing to soul singers, rock and music from all over the wide world. It's bundled together with stories and melodies to take you on a journey of the heart.

Eccentric Day
Our annual, “come as you aren’t” party is back again! This year we’re shaking it up a bit with DJ Bowser from WIDR who will be spinning during the day, Babylon Sneakers (a Steely Dan tribute band) taking us through happy hour and then a three DJ group called Analog Ancestry rounding the night out. Regular restaurant seating and service will not be offered as we will be providing a wide variety of very eccentric food items all day in a buffet style. The best part is that all the food is free! If the free grub and dancin’ beats aren’t enough, last year we had a rotation of over 60 beers. So come and let your alter ego out and have a great time! Must be 21 or older all day and night for admittance to the Eccentric Cafe. NO ADMITTANCE WITHOUT ALTER EGO.

Flint Eastwood wsg Night Riots, Valley Hush ($10adv/$12dos)
Flint Eastwood is the evolution of the creative side of Detroit-based multi-talented artist Jax Anderson. Flint Eastwood is what happens when friends and family gather in the forgotten spaces of an embattled city and are left to create with no rules, no boundaries, and nothing holding them back. Jax's endless creativity is a byproduct of growing up in a talented family.
