This is a new entertainment place in the centre of Riga, it just opened September of last year. Before that it used to be a music school, but they moved out. Kaņepes Culture Center is only one year old, but already brings a lot of people together. This place loves everybody – the young and old, artists, IT specialists, kids, teachers and professors. Even pets and other animals.
From the outside Kaņepes Culture Center looks like any typical building, which needs to be renovated. But when I entered it, I saw a lot more. During the day it is open for kids for creative art lessons. On the first and second floor there are exhibitions. But in the evening it brings together a lot of nice, positive, creative (or not so creative), good people. Music is played live. There is no musical equipment like big speakers, microphones and other stuff and this makes it extra live, and creates extra atmosphere.
There is no fancy interior, but they do not need it anyway. People come together to listen to music, talk, play table games, and enjoy exhibitions and generally have a good evening. There is also a bar, where they serve drinks and smiles. And the best thing: they love bicycles.
Recently they started to teach the percussion.
