As Bratislava is continuing to evolve into a bright, bustling city filled with young professionals, students, and social movements, there is growing need for spaces perfect for meeting up and getting stuff done! Preferably surrounded by ultra-hip aesthetics, fancy coffee and craft beer, and a like-minded staff that welcomes guests like they were welcoming them into their home. We found that space in Satori Stage, a multi-functional cafe and meeting space that feels like hanging out at your super cool friend’s flat, only with better coffee.
Just a few meters away from Medická záhrada, Satori Stage is right at home in this neighborhood dotted with galleries and art supplies stores. In the spring and summer Mickiewiczova is a tree-shaded street and strolling around this part of the city can be a pleasant squandering of a weekend afternoon. The location, about 15 minutes from Old Town by foot, also makes Satori a great pit-stop to or from a night on the town. Or, when utilizing the back space for events or a meeting space, the centralized local is a huge plus.
THE FRONT BAR WITH REFRESHMENT
The large, open air front room of Satori Stage is open to the public as a cafe. A selection of custom coffee drinks are served, along with exceptional craft beer and home-made snacks. The team is ridiculously affable and attentive, though just laid-back enough to allow the guest to sip a drink for hours in the corner with a good book and not feel rushed to leave. Many patrons use this front room to study or work on business. We came for the food and, you know us, desserts!
The weekday menu here changes regularly – though a quick visit to their facebook page will keep you posted! While not gourmet, the kitchen here is genuine and familiar. This is dinner party style fair, with comforting favorites such as Spaghetti Bolognese and creamy tomato soup.
Recently the menu has expanded to include a nod to American favorites: hotdogs and coleslaw! Our favorite thing about Satori’s take on this classic is the Brioche bun and TONS of cheese.
COWORKING AREA FOR MEMBERS
The “heart of cultural life” at Satori Stage, as they say on their site, is the culture of sharing new ideas, encouraging of lively debate, hosting workshops and seminars, and providing a space for artists and musicians to showcase their work in an comfortably open-minded space.
Events are held most nights ranging from gaming meetups to design firm lectures to good ol’ fashioned karaoke nights. The programme looks always cool and we recommend that you check what they are planning regurly.
Whether it be young families, college kids, trendy entrepreneurs, or folks seeking out coffee and time lost in thought, every person who walks through the doors here is greeted with warmth. This is one of Satori Stage’s greatest strengths and one that will bring us back again and again.
