Crimson Moon

A brief history from our friends, customers, and longtime fair trade coffee supporters:

The tiny seed that was planted in October of 2001 and began a seven year long evolution from a single story art gallery into a 150-seat nationally known music venue was the mission statement “To Support, Promote & Reward Creativity & Community.” Housed in the historic c.1858 ‘Parker Nix Store-House,’ and decorated in funky folk art ‘The Moon’s ‘ welcoming atmosphere now feels like a fusion of ‘California coffee house’ and ‘New Orleans supper club’ – but it didn’t always! From an art gallery that gave away free coffee… to a full ‘coffee house’ serving only organic, shade grown, fairly traded coffee/tea and locally made baked goods… to a deli with a two page menu and live music two nights a week… to the building along the way of a brand new kitchen, four different stages and a c.1900 style ‘saloon’ upstairs… The Crimson Moon Café slowly morphed into a renowned restaurant that is also a rising star on the list of nationally known ‘listening venues.’ A four page feature article in Southern Living’s Feb. ’08 issue didn’t hurt a bit, but it was the proprietress’s dreams, drive, and dedication that fed and watered the tiny seed of 2001 that grew into a business that can now wear ‘The Southeast’s Most Intimate Listening Venue – Where the Creative Spirit Shines’ as it’s defining statement.

Ask any local about The Crimson Moon Cafe and they will often describe it as “the coolest, most happening place in North Georgia.” Now featuring a six page menu, a full coffee house, live music four days a week, and a saloon with an awesome ‘over the square’ view, the same stage that hosts renowned acoustic artists from all over the world also showcases the best of local talent via weekly jam sessions or monthly Open Mics and Southern Songwriter Showcases. Ask any artist who’s shared their music from The Crimson Moon Cafe’s stage and they’ll most likely tell you that ‘The Moon’ is one of their most favorite places to perform in the entire United States. The proprietress’s dream became a dynamic reality – a place of ministry and community where the authentic creative spirit can truly ‘rise and shine!’

From Café Campesino:

If you find yourself in the Dahlonega, GA area, we encourage you to stop and hang a while with “The Moon”. Thanks Dana & crew.
