Cheatham Street Warehouse

There are very few music venues that have as much musical reverence and historical charm as Cheatham Street Warehouse. The place where George Strait, Randy Rogers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Shelley King, John Arthur Martinez, Todd Snider, Slaid Cleaves, Terri Hendrix and many more honed their skills – Cheatham Street Warehouse is a music-lovers paradise. 

Open Daily   4:00 pm-2:00am

A non-profit foundation was established after more than three decades of national music success that includes a list of musicians who cut their teeth on the stage of the rustic old Cheatham Street Warehouse. Today that list of artists make up a “Who’s Who of American Music.”  The Cheatham Street Music Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing, promoting, preserving, and perpetuating Texas music.  The spirit of Cheatham Street Warehouse lives in the hearts of so many artists who grew up on that little stage. And they share the tradition of “passing it forward,” and remembering their roots. The CSMF continues to shape new and young talent in the art, craft, and business of songwriting, as well as developing and nurturing songwriters and musicians through opportunities to perform music and participate in songwriting contests.
