Freebird Live (originally Freebird Cafe) is a music venue located in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.


The venue opened in September 8, 1999, with a concert by The Charlie Daniels Band.[1] The cafe featured Lynyrd Skynyrd memorabilia, food and recorded music.

In 2005, the owners of the venue considered moving the venue location to accommodate a larger capacity and big name acts. Buildings in Atlantic Beach, Florida and Jacksonville, Florida were considered. However, the owners decided to renovate its current location in lieu of moving.[2]
