500 N Market St, Wilmington, DE 19801

World Cafe Live at the Queen is proud to be the home of amazing concerts, great food, and the best parties in town. Originally built as a hotel, and eventually converted to a movie theater, the Queen remained dark for over fifty years. With the help of many dedicated partners and the City of Wilmington, the doors to the majestic were re-opened in April 2011. World Cafe Live at the Queen has featured an average of 250 ticketed shows, 50 free shows, and over 200 special events a year since joining the World Cafe Live family alongside World Cafe Live in Philadelphia. With two separate stages in one building, World Cafe Live at the Queen offers a unique concert going experience that is truly unsurpassed. Both venues continue to bring the best of what’s out there while introducing emerging nation and international talent like Alabama Shakes, Trombone Shorty, Brandi Carlile and The Lone Bellow to their loyal guests.
