The moment you step onto the grounds of Adobe Graffiti Lounge, you feel like you’ve been transported into Wonderland – a place where you can relax, socialize, create, work, or just simply “be.”
The space, which is open 7 days a week from 10 am to 1 am, is like a second home to many. Any time you visit, it’s common to find people playing music, creating art, playing games, reading poetry, having conversations, and making friends.
There truly is something for everyone here. It’s family-friendly during the day and 18+ at night, although children are typically allowed with a parent. Adobe Graffiti Lounge is also pet-friendly, welcoming well-behaved dogs on a leash.
There’s never a shortage of things to do here. Adobe has theme nights/days every day of the week, such as family-friendly board game nights on Tuesdays, open mic nights on Sundays, and “Bar Sessions” on Fridays, when you’ll find a live DJ spinning at the bar.
There’s a “Books & Botanicals” book club held here every other Sunday, and Adobe also hosts the 13th and 13th Art Market in collaboration with Birdrock Taco Shack on the first Friday and Saturday of the month during the Village of the Arts monthly art walks.
On Thursdays, from 6 pm to 7:30 pm, you can enjoy a donation-based yoga class hosted by the incredible Jaye Martin. This “Bula Kula” class is a combination of meditation and yoga. It’s a hybrid flow that focuses on creativity and alignment. You also definitely don’t want to miss “Spin Saturdays,” when they have a DJ spinning live music on the stage and fire and flow performers.
No matter your background or age, there’s no arguing that the vibe here is absolutely incredible. When asked how she would describe Adobe Graffiti Lounge, one patron said:
“To me, Adobe is a safe place where I can go and know that people love me and celebrate me for who I am – and where I can do the same for others.”
“It’s a place where the community can come together and everyone can be themselves. I think it’s one of the few places where your individuality is championed – and people appreciate that. It’s authentic.”
