The Red Room at Cafe 939


The Red Room at Cafe 939 is a state-of-the-art, all-ages, student-run music venue.  Located at 939 Boylston Street, the venue showcases Berklee's emerging student talent, local artists, as well as national acts seeking a more intimate, personal space in which to perform and connect with their fans. While most rooms in Boston have a specific musical niche, Cafe 939 will embrace nearly any style, from rock, jazz, folk, and world, to bluegrass, hip-hop, electronica, avant-garde, and beyond.

The 200-capacity concert venue, which features high-end PA and lighting systems, video and DVD capabilities, and flexible seating, is equipped for a wide variety of performances. Music business/management majors are responsible for the booking, marketing, publicity, and promotion of shows at the almost completely student-run operation. Berklee students also work as ushers, box office clerks, and in the stage crew.

The cafe is currently a sushi and noodle bar that features wireless internet access, a sleek, modern design concept, a relaxed atmosphere with a number of large, comfortable sofas and chairs, and a Berklee history room with walls covered in old photographs and materials chronicling the college's past.
