If you are looking to enjoy a cultural event in an informal atmosphere, have a glass of wine, chat with people you just met about the value of art, whales or windings of destiny, or simply spend some time in a pleasant place – come to Kaņepes Culture Centre.
It is not just a café or a club. We offer various exhibitions, experimental art and culture events on a regular basis. The undeniably artistic atmosphere and the free-spirited public of the café will contribute to a truly bohemian entertainment. Kaņepes Culture Centre also has its own garden, which is a perfect hang-out place for warm summer nights and not just.
The building that houses Kaņepes Culture Centre is over 100 years old. It was a venue for social events organized by Baltic German and Russian aristocrats, and a bohemian place during the time of the independent Latvian state, when it was occupied by students of the Art Academy. For some time the building was left uncared for, but now Kaņepes Culture Centre is restoring it room by room to bring back the soul of this beautiful building.
