Mon Ami With you

A former pet care salon, Mon Ami has catered to a different kind of wild animal since opening in 2007. The small lifestyle emporium is outfitted with a bar, music shop and fashion studio to provide a panacea for all primal needs—a place to cure thirst, hunger, art, music, social exchange, creativity, warmth…well, you get the picture.

Plush sofa chairs are easy to sink back into, especially when grabbing a drink or a bite to eat—crusty pita sandwiches and soups (gluten-free and based on the five elements) are advisable picks. Come for the ambiance, or come for the chill-out grooves on Wednesdays at the Friendly Circle evening, hosted by the DJ-collective Groovebox.

Porgy & Bess Jazz is the space

A modern live music venue where the sound and light concepts actually matter, is not as common as it should be. Aware of this, Porgy and Bess, the jazz and music club, made it their goal to create a contemporary performance space for jazz music—one that was able to transform according to the dictates of the music.

Additionally, there is a CD shop and internet cafe, a gallery, a restaurant and three bars (two in the lower level and one on the balcony). If that was not enough, below the stage there is also a rehearsal room and a sound studio, which allows professional recording for on- or off-stage productions.

While featuring local and international jazz artists like Bobby Previte, Kenny Wheeler, Django Bates, Eliott Sharp and Martin Siewert, there are also some cross over collaborations with electronica experimental label, Charihzma. On the weekends there are soul and funk DJ sessions.
