We are occupying 3 Bristo Place, Edinburgh. This is the building that used to be home to The Forest Café, a community run arts space, until August 2011. After the owners (Edinburgh University Settlement) were declared bankrupt management was taken over by PricewaterhouseCoopers. They didn’t care about having a community space here preferring the building to stand empty and fall into disrepair. We do care about community spaces! We’ve reclaimed this building autonomously as the peoples cafe. We’re not the forest, but come and visit us.
To get in find the large orange/red double doors and give a knock. The space is open from 10am till 1am, with quite time from midnight onwards.
