The Cat in the Cream Coffeehouse is a student-run performance and meeting space at Oberlin. As the college’s only exclusively free venue, the Cat provides a relaxed and friendly environment for student groups and traveling artists alike. Home to the famous Cat Cookies, it offers a space for live jazz, folk, and popular music, spoken word, theater, dance, slam poetry, workshops, community events, and student activism meetings.

Come hang out, check out our radical zine library, enjoy a delicious cookie, and see a free show.
