The 13th Note Café is a restaurant, bar and music venue in Glasgow, Scotland.
It opened in 1997 on Glassford Street, before moving to its present site on King Street. Later, the 13th Note franchise expanded to include a larger club venue on Clyde Street. The holding company that owned both venues went into receivership in November 2001. In the summer of 2002, The 13th Note Club was bought over by the Channelfly Group (owners of the Barfly franchise), leaving only the café venue still open under its original name.
It has hosted concerts by a number of notable acts, including Idlewild, Belle & Sebastian and Franz Ferdinand. Prior to forming Franz Ferdinand, Alex Kapranos was the music programmer at the venue and hosted the Kazoo Club and 99p Club. The current music programmer is Brendan O'Hare.
