The 13th Note Café is a restaurant, bar and music venue in Glasgow, Scotland.

It opened in 1997[1] on Glassford Street, before moving to its present site on King Street. Later, the 13th Note franchise expanded to include a larger club venue on Clyde Street. The holding company that owned both venues went into receivership in November 2001.[2] In the summer of 2002, The 13th Note Club was bought over by the Channelfly Group (owners of the Barfly franchise),[3] leaving only the café venue still open under its original name.

It has hosted concerts by a number of notable acts, including Idlewild, Belle & Sebastian, Franz Ferdinand and Futuristic Retro Champions. Prior to forming Franz Ferdinand, Alex Kapranos was the music programmer at the venue and hosted the Kazoo Club and 99p Club.[4][5] The current music programmer is Brendan O'Hare.
