The Two Way Street Coffee House is open Friday evenings from 7:30 pm until at least 10:30. For 46 years, we've featured live folk and acoustic musical entertainment every Friday night between 8:15 and about 10:30. Occasionally, we also host special events at other times, and frequent Old Time Barn Dances. (see our Entertainment Schedule)
We have informal Sing-Arounds (instrumental and vocal jam sessions) on the first and third Saturday afternoons of every month, and a Bluegrass Jam on the fourth Saturday, all at 2:00pm. In months when there is a fifth Saturday, we have a Country/Western Jam, also at 2:00pm. We have a Song Circle on the 2nd Tuesday of every month (7-9pm) where a musician can informally perform a new song for other musicians. On the Last Thursday (LAST THURSDAY) of every month we feature a special unplugged open mike for high-school and college age students.
We're located at 1047 Curtiss Street, one block west of Main Street, inside the First Congregational Church building in downtown Downers Grove, just across the street from the Downers Grove Public Library. Our entrance is at the northwest corner of the building, at Forest Street. We're just two blocks from the Metra commuter rail station at Downers Grove Main Street. (directions, train info)
We offer a very informal environment, and serve a variety of coffees, teas, soda, cider, hot chocolate and snacks. No alcohol is served, and no meals. We are a non-smoking coffee house, and we welcome all ages. We have a requested donation of $10.00 on Fridays.
Our telephone number is 630-969-9720, but this website is your best source for entertainment schedules, directions, booking information, and other information.
We hope to see you soon!
