It is family friendly too. Love offering. Masks are optional.


The mission of the Second Saturday Community CoffeeHouse is to provide Albuquerque and the surrounding community with quality musical experiences in a family-style, listening-room environment. The events are family friendly and free to the public. The House opens at 6:00 pm and the performance starts promptly at 6:30 pm.

Held the second Saturday of each month at Unity Spiritual Center of Albuquerque, located at 9800 Candelaria Rd NE, just slightly east of Eubank and across the street from the Post Office. The CoffeeHouse events consist of an Opening Act and a Headliner except for two Open Mics per year (June and December).

The CoffeeHouse hosts both professional and amateur musicians and performers of all ages.  The response has been so positive that the event is already booked well into 2022.

The Second Saturday Community CoffeeHouse is always on the lookout for talented acts for both openers and headliners as well as offering opportunities for businesses and individuals to sponsor the events.
