Ashkenaz Music and Dance Community Center

Dance , Music , Live Music Venue


The mission of Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center is to build community and understanding of the world's cultures by presenting concerts and classes in participatory dance and music rooted in traditional cultures from around the world.

Ashkenaz is committed to supporting both established and emerging local, regional, national and international artists in a respectful, comfortable, and family-friendly atmosphere.


Ashkenaz Music & Dance Community Center is a nationally recognized nonprofit venue that specializes in presenting live world and roots music, 6 nights a week, year round.

Converted from a warehouse by founder David Nadel who opened the club in 1973, the place is truly unique. Its best feature is the big wooden dance floor, voted best place to dance the night away in the East Bay Express reader's poll for 9 years of the past 10!

Ashkenaz brings people of all ages, cultures and lifestyles together with music and dance from around the world... African, Balkan, Brazilian, Cajun/Zydeco, Carribbean, Middle Eastern, Reggae, American roots from Bluegrass to Swing, and more.

Ashkenaz presents live music, dance, and movement classes, workshops, programs for children, and benefit shows year-round and is ALWAYS ALL AGES. Ashkenaz's Cafe is open during shows and serves beer (bottled & draft), wine, and non-alcoholic beverages (including kombucha on tap), as well as yummy vegetarian snacks.
