El Mejunje is a sprawling complex with numerous performance spaces. The place is overly-welcoming. A fine place to see a show, have a drink and converse with locals, artists, and global travelers. HIGHLY recommend!

This is a great place; artistic but not pretentious; great live music without being exclusive; open to all ages and all peoples....as any live music venue should be! 'Mejunje' is very central, it has a mildly rebellious and truly local vibe, without making you feel...More
