Ambasada is not a place that can easily be described in words. But instead, it can be described in people, events, and initiatives. It is that cozy go-to place that seems to fit everyone and every occasion: freelancers, remote workers, creatives, students and parents alike. It is a bistro, a cafe, a meeting place, an “incubator” and, most importantly, a get-together place for people with creative initiatives.
The story of Ambasada started in 2014 when the founders of Plai Festival (one of the biggest music festivals in Timisoara, about which we’ve written before here) decided to try and create a meeting place for the creative people in Timisoara. One of their aims was to create a space that brings together people who shared the love of big ideas and the desire to make a positive change in the world.
So, what exactly is Ambasada?
A coworking place / bistro / cafe.
Yes, it is a bistro and a cafe that also has a scent of a coworking space. Freelancers, NGO workers, students and anyone who wants a place that can host them for a few hours while they work on their projects are welcome here.
And on the bistro side, did we mentioned they served homemade cookies every day?!
An incubator / event venue.
This is where the magic sometimes happens. Ambasada offers a meeting room and a big events’ room to those willing to organise interesting projects. They host events regularly, so do check out their Facebook page for updates. These events can be: conferences, workshops, social projects, movie screenings, concerts – and basically anything else meant to enrich Timisoara’s cultural life. You can find the full list of events they are hosting on their website.
A get-together place.
In addition to the things listed above, Ambasada can also be seen as a cozy cafe. It’s a lovely quiet place in which you can enjoy good food and drinks together with friends and family (it is also a family-friendly place). If you visit during the warm season, you can relax on their beautiful terrace just outside of the building. Cozy and shady, it’s the perfect place to sip a cool beer or a lemonade in the summertime.
You can currently find Ambasada on the banks of the Bega river, here:
