Welcome to Cece’s Speakeasy.

A place for truth-seekers, chocolate lovers and coffee drinkers.

For adventurers.

For those with a story to tell and those who want to listen.

A place to indulge in the forbidden delights of an espresso martini, devour a hot chocolate and just kick back, relax and immerse yourself. 

A place for the people.

Join us for a night of entertainment and hear storytellers, poets and musicians share new work exploring hope and action during the climate emergency. 

Featuring: Jan Blake, Anthony Joseph, The Repeat Beat Poet, Safiya Kamaria Kinshasa and Amyra León.
