I came here to visit a photography show - based around the use of Polaroid images. I stopped inside for cappuccino. Kaapelitehas puts on many different sorts of fine art and photography shows and is a great cultural centre. Easy to reach by tram.

Social gathering, party happenings. All can be booked ahead of time. The set up are usually arrange by companies that are specialist to that with varying set p depending what you want and it comes at a cost. Looking for a place to arrange a big time party, this is it! I recommend for party goers.
