Welcome to The Caravan Lounge

THE CARAVAN LOUNGE is a friendly, owner-operated bar located in the heart of downtown San Jose. As well as being one of San Jose’s oldest live music venues, the Caravan provides other fun activities such as karaoke, comedy, burlesque, pool table, and DJ nights.  The Caravan is also extremely affordable for those trying to stretch a budget.  And let’s not forget the music! All the shows at the Caravan are FREE!  

Open Mon – Friday 2pm – 1:30am

Open Sat and Sun 11am – 1:30am


“Aside from the obvious draw of affordable libations poured by heavy-handed barkeeps, The Caravan sets itself apart from other no-frills bars as the place to go to see up-and-coming bands. The bar has hosted plenty of local bands’ first shows, and regularly features smaller touring acts. If you’re a music fan always on the lookout for your new favorite group, make sure to pay attention to who is coming to Caravan.” -Metro
