Many of the museums we have talked about in recent posts have art galleries as intrinsic parts of their offerings. However for many of us a coffee or a meal as part of our art appreciation experience would add another more refined facet. In response to this we have seen the advent of Art Galleries situated in cafes or restaurant, enabling a fusing of two interests. An Art, Food and Drink experience has started to emerge in CDO that could provide interesting side trips as you explore the city.
In this post we thought we would share some of these establishments:
CAPRICHO ART CAFE
This modern gallery allows you to sit among the artworks as you sip a beverage or eat a meal. A relazing way view local contemporary art. See a selection of exhibits on their Facebook Page
Open every day except Sunday from 8am to 8 pm
CENTRIO MALL ACTIVITY CENTER
Features spaces for both contemporary fine arts and performing arts. You can see some of what they offer on their Facebook Page
The idea is that wherever you are in the mall you can view whatever is on in the activity centre, so you have a choice of places to eat.
Into Music, Art & Style, then be at the Mall TOMORROW NIGHT at 6pm for a great show, part of the annual Good Vibes Festival.
Find out more on their Facebook Page
The Activity Centre is open from 10am – 10pm daily
The most unique of our offerings, but still falling withing the definition of Art Food and Drink, is this new addition to the cafe scene.
Offering Coffee Selfies among other Coffee Artwork
You can find out what it all means on their Facebook Page
For a personal experience find them here:
The corner of Pabayo and Gaerlan streets
Cagayan de Oro City
Opening hours are:
Monday to Thursday 8:00AM-10:00PM
Friday and Saturday 8:00AM-11:00PM
Whatever you do, if you are visiting for an event or following an art lead get on the phone right now and either get a booking or extend your stay at the Kingston Lodge Hotel. Much more than a hotel.
