Espaço Cultural Gabinete website

Espaço Gabinete likes to see itself in the vein of private clubs of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, when scientists and explorers would gather together to marvel over curiosities such as rare gems or the skulls of exotic creatures. In time, such venues gave way to the phenomenon known as museums, but back in the day, you could enjoy a bit of fine dining and a drink with your scientific perusals. Happily, here you still can. Along with a superior menu of food from Minas Gerais and a good choice of ice cold beers, Gabinete has a full cultural programme that includes music shows and one-off party nights. In a hotly contested field, it is fast making its name as one to watch in the Lapa area. Don't forget to check out the modern day answer to the curiosities of the past - Gabinete has a fine collection of Star Wars figures, comics and other paraphernalia to spark debates that would rival those of yesteryear.
