FOOD FOR THOUGHT!


You don't need to be a world renowned philosopher, to be endowed with the wisdom of Socrates, or to have read the complete works of Plato to enjoy the stimulating atmosphere of a philosophy café.

Discover café life at the Top of Town and delight in the good food and drink to order (available throughout the evening) in a vibrant space and listen to guest speakers, ponder provocative topics, and with plenty of opportunity to join in the lively discussion.

Stay for a brief moment or be the last to leave!
