The café as a public space and forum for discussion and community

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.

Turning city cafés into intellectual nooks for open discussion has a long history dating back to 1947 in Paris. Since then thousands of philosophy café goers worldwide have embraced the idea as a way to enhance thinking about the world around them, and to encourage more airing of opinions and civic debate.

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!
