Book Your Creative Space

The historic bungalow with its breezy verandah, high ceilings and many of its original wooden finishings, hosts an intimate indoor event space – ideal for readings, discussions, launches, workshops, meetings and other events year-round. The premises also boast flexible outdoor spaces that can be easily transformed to satisfy the needs of receptions, performances and film screenings. 

So we’ve included a co-working space with two hot-desks to support professionals needing temporary workspace with full office facilities. We’re conveniently situated two blocks from Tragarete Road, a main public transportation route into Port of Spain, and two minutes walking distance from Maraval Road, which offers a variety of eating (and drinking) options.
