A marvelous local spot off the tourist track for art, performance, and eating.
A multi-use centre in Jarabacoa where culture meets cuisine.
A charming spot in the town of Jarabacoa started by a local artist/artisan cooperative, it combines a gallery/shop, eatery, and performance venue – and besides being a fetching spot in and of itself, the appeal is that it's operated by Dominicans for Dominicans. Everything about it is authentic and deeply local – not just the food, but the arts and crafts, which are created for locals and not tourists. There are weekly cultural events, including open-mic nights – and in addition to being a great spot for coffee and sweets, it offers a way to rub shoulders with locals and watch them let their hair down in a creative environment.
