Our Story - Wussow's Concert Cafe

The History

It all began in the summer of 1999. The main purpose was to create a welcoming atmosphere for anyone who loved great conversation, amazing coffee, healthy food, and the best original music… a place to socialize during the day, work or study in the afternoon, or enjoy concerts at night.

During our first 10 years, we have found our place with awesome ‘regulars’, our amazing staff, local and national touring musicians, and the great community of West Duluth. We thank you for your endless support!


Into the second decade of our existence, we are proud of our achievements and growth into new areas of service that far exceed our initial goals established so many years ago!

Our new conference and meeting rooms above the coffeehouse offer a private and relaxing setting for small parties and business meetings. Yearly gift sales and monthly art openings let people showcase their passion and hard work! The creation of our recording studio offers musicians the opportunity to have their live shows recorded, mixed, and mastered at reasonable prices with very little effort.

The Future

Looking forward, we, the staff of Beaner’s Central, are dedicated to continue the best service, conversation, friendship, and musical entertainment that we can provide. Stop in for a coffee, stay for a concert, or drop by to say ‘Hi’!
