San Jose's premier small music venue.
Part comic book store, part music venue, part cafe, but all cool. The Art Boutiki is the perfect place for your next private party, live musical performance, and your ticket to a one of a kind experience in San Jose. Walk through the front door from midtown's historic Race Street, and you'll be treated to an art gallery and comic book store featuring a curated inventory of indy books and small press titles, t-shirts, cd's, and even records from the many bands who have graced our stage. Stepping through the curtain will reveal our comfy event space with a stage and cafe. We serve beer, wine, coffee, and small bites during events. The Art Boutiki is the perfect place to book a CD release show, birthday party, award ceremony, recital, or just a great place to come hang out.
Most of our shows have a cover charge, but we do a few monthly events that are completely free such as our Drink N' Draw, open mic, and jazz jam.
