Café Blackbird is a family run coffee, wine bar and live music haven nestled in the heart of Edmonton’s most historical community, Crestwood. It's a warm, intimate space which features music and is surrounded by art.

Café Blackbird is pleased to present and promote independent local musicians. Our intimate venue allows for a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere that is both unique and welcoming. We feature new music from some of Edmonton’s best acoustic singer-songwriters, the city’s most prominent jazz, blues, world, folk, RnB, country, pop and indie musicians, along with occasional touring musicians.

Café Blackbird exhibits and sells works of art created by artists from the Greater Edmonton area. Showcased artists work in a variety of styles and media that offer new and established art collectors unique and eclectic selections of fine artwork. Our gallery displays rotate monthly to provide exposure for many visual artists throughout the year.
