We are adding living space to Café Ada

Café Ada is located in the heart of the ›Mirker Quartier‹ in Wuppertal, Germany. The café is not only a meeting place for coffee lovers, but also a cultural hotspot for art, dance, music and theatre.

The roof of Café Ada is currently not in use. We plan to add living space on top of Café Ada that will benefit the café and the people in Wuppertal.
