Camissa which used to be at the Nucleo de Arte has moved to its new venue at the Feira Popular (next to Face 2 Face) in Maputo.

We will continue to provide an artistic venue where live music events will take place on Fridays and sundays (and if there is visiting bands this could happen on other days)and a restaurant.

Our art gallery and internet cafe are open and will shortly be opening a art and craft shop as well as starting other events such as poetry evenings and theatre evenings.

Camissa will continue to be a relaxed place to come and enjoy good food, music and art (in whichever form it takes).

We went out for Sunday drinks and social and met some great locals, saw some great art and had some local beers. The band apparently is different each Sunday evening. We got there about 6:30pm. It was fusion jazz but great atmosphere. I would really recommend visiting.

The best thing about Café Camissa was always their music bands selection. You'll find some great musicians you've never heard about, and typical mozambican music like marrabenta, local reggae songstas and oldies of the Maputo music scene!

We went to Núcleo de Arte daytime to see the arts, and recommended by local about the party on Sunday evening. Sunday evening party was great. It started early, music was African tune but Portuguese, and very good mixed crowd, locals, tourists and NGO workers. I enjoyed their Sunday party a lot. Also after the party, it was easy to...

With some time to fill in, friends & I dropped by the artists’ co-operative late one afternoon/early evening. Unfortunately there was not a great deal to see as the main room was being set up for a new exhibition and the bar not open. However, there were a number of artists in residence, a few working, as well as small... More

More commonly known as Nucleo de Arte, this bar his usually full every Sunday evening with live music and a very bohemian atmosphere. With an art studio in the back its a good place to see many of Mozambique's up and coming artists at work. The bar is much more relaxed other nights of the week.

We stumbled on this place when staying in the Hotel Cardona which is only a five minute walk away. It comprises an art gallery and cafe bar. The gallery is given over to local modern artists and is free to enter. Some of the pictures showed great promise but they are not cheap, prices were all in US dollars. We... More
