The Cave is a student-led music and entertainment venue, located at Carleton College. It is a favorite gathering place for students at Carleton College and is one of a limited number of music venues in Northfield, Minnesota. Founded in 1927, it is the oldest student-run pub in America and is housed on the lowest level of the Margaret Evans residence hall.[1][2]

The Cave has undergone many transformations over the decades: from lounge, to cabaret-style theater, to game room and finally, a music venue.[3]

The Cave is open Tuesday-Saturday for Carleton students during the academic term. There are typically several shows each week, most often on Friday and Saturday nights.[4] A Carleton College ID card is usually required for entry, but there are sometimes shows that are open to the public.

The Cave has hosted a number of distinguished musicians, guests, and performers over the years.[5][6]
