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.
