Bomontiada was transformed into an art, music & food space when an old beer factory was renovated. Whether you are a party animal or an aesthete, a beer gourmet or a foodie, this is a place for you. In Bomontiada, there are modern cafes, pubs and restaurants, art galleries, live performance centers. Besides, many festivals, free open-air concerts are being held in the courtyard. The ambiance of old factory makes it a great place to take photos for IG influencers, too.

The only problem with Bomontiada is that it gets quite crowded, especially on days of special events and festivals. So, if you are looking for a quiet corner, it might be the only thing you can’t find here.

My personal favorites among the places in Bomontiada are Babylon and Populist. I usually first visit the recent exhibition at the gallery, have beer or cocktails with snacks at Populist, then dance to the DJ performances at Babylon (you can check the recent DJ performances at Babylon and Populist on their IG pages). If the dance stage of Babylon could talk, would it complain about us, I wonder? 😉

All the pubs/restaurants are a bit pricey even though there is no entrance fee to Bomontiada itself. Of course, you can enjoy free performances at the courtyard in this great atmosphere or just visit exhibitons, but beware that it is not allowed to bring drinks/food from outside.
