Since 2001 Mono has been a venue for live music, literary events, political debates and countless other happenings. All taking place in a cozy setting that reduces the space between artist and audience.

At some point we realized man can not live on culture alone, and so in 2007 we expanded and opened Mono Kitchen to nourish the body as well. Fresh ingredients and excellent options for both meat and veg types are the core values of our food philosophy.

Mono´s diverse program of events is a reflection of a committed and engaged staff, as well as a discerning public. Though we may host a book launch here or a political debate there, our principle focus has always been the music.

If you´re wondering what its really all about, just drop by any day or night of the week. Whether you´re starving for solid or liquid food, need a musical bone to chew on, or a spiritual boost you haven´t been getting lately, ALL are welcome.
