The closest metro stations are Obvodny Kanal (a violet line of the metro) or Ligovskiy prospect (an orange line of the metro)

It takes you about 7-10 minutes to go from the metro exit to the cafe.

HOW TO GET to the cafe from OBVODNY KANAL: Go out from the metro station Obvodny Kanal (a violet line of the metro), cross the river Obvodniy Canal and a road (this road is a part of Embankment of Obvodniy Canal) by pedastrian crossing!!!, be very CAREFUL!!! so you`ll be just in front of the house number 79, there is a big picture on the house 79. Turn to the left and go along the river till the first street (you will pass strange metall constraction). It`ll be Voronejskaya street, cross this street and you`ll be near the house number 15-17. Turn to the right and go along Voronejskaya street till the house number 3 (you will pass the house with a sign "Ingosstrakh", so the next house is number 3). And you`ll be on the corner of Voronejskaya street and Pechatnika Grigoryeva street. Just a few steps to the left and you`ll see a yellow sign with red letters "АФРИКА" and colourful Graffiti on the house 13.

HOW TO GET to the cafe from LIGOVSKIY PROSPECT: Go out from the metro station Ligovskiy prospect (an orange line of the metro), cross Ligovskiy prospect by underground passage (use the last exit on the left), go along Ligovskiy prospect to the left till the FIRST (DON`T MISS IT) small street (it will be Ostropol`skiy pereulok), turn to the right to Ostropol`skiy pereulok and go along it a few metres till Pechatnika Grigoryeva street, turn to the left to Pechatnika Grigoryeva street and go along the street till the house number 13. There`s a yellow sign with red letters "АФРИКА" and colourful Graffiti on the house number 13 .

A few steps down - and You are in the cafe "Africa".

TO FIND US IN THE CAFE: from the entrance go straight, pass a room and a bar-counter and the last room will be booked for us (look for a banner "COUCHSURFING").

ABOUT the place: This place is very good for eating and drinking and chatting :) You can check the menu at the site but only in Russian (beer costs 150-200 rub/0.5l, wine - from 180 rub/0.2l, coffee - from 70 rub, tea - from 160 rub, a lot of cocktails and tasty, not expensive food) http://art-afrika.ru/

HOW TO ORDER: You should order at the bar counter. There`s a menu in English but the staff might not speak English so, please, don`t hesitate to ask locals for the help :) Usually they accept credit cards.

SMOKING: It`s not allowed to smoke inside any bars/cafes.
You can smoke outside but, please, don`t be very noisy, people live in the houses around :)

It`s a pity but Africa WORKS only till 11 p.m. but if You`d like to go on - there are a lot of bars not far from Africa...

======================================================

    Excited to attend this event again! I was there last week and it was awesome! May I suggest that we somehow move the table so as to form a "square"? Otherwise, it's always only 8 people at one table, and unless people actually physically walk over to other tables, only groups of 8 people will talk to each other.

    Whereas if 4 or 6 tables were moved into a square formation, at least 16 to 20 people can face each other and engage more people into conversation :)

  5. Anna Gordeeva

    St Petersburg, St Petersburg, Russian Federation

    No, sorry, we won't move tables. This scheme was found by 5 years of experience.
    It's easy to walk/move when it's like that
    And you can't talk with more than 8 people anyway
    Last time there were not so many people but when we are more- you can actually hear only your neighbor ☺

    Okay cool! When you see me Anna, please say hi to me! I don't believe I met you at the last meet-up! Nice venue though!!!
