MAP café offers a range of healthy, home made food, fresh juices, gourmet coffee and beer on tap in a relaxed, homely environment. Our intimate venue space plays host to an eclectic live events programme, featuring live Jazz, World Music, Soul, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Folk Music, DJs and film nights. We also hire out the space for private functions, film locations and corporate events. Clients include Rihanna, 20/20 Productions, Sky TV and The Green Party.

Established in 1992, starting out as a recording studio, record label and streetwear clothing brand, MAP has worked with artists such as Dawn Penn, Goldie, Roots Manuva and Junior Delgado.

The recording studio offers a unique creative space with a great selection of vintage and modern equipment, offering recording, mixing, production and location recording services. The venue is wired to the studio giving the option of recording live events. Hip-hop radio station, Itch FM also broadcasts from the premises.
