You are cordially invited to attend a new event in Boulder, reminiscent of the European Enlightenment Salons of the 17 and 18 centuries -but with a cultural twist!

Imagine a candle-lit, cafe-style setting where you can meet with contemporaries in a variety of fields to exchange timely ideas...while enjoying a relaxing, artistic ambiance and gourmet food.

We will have a notable guest presenter (TBA) to ignite our dialogue as we assemble in the comfortable ambiance of an Middle Eastern Oud musician playing softly in the background, tastes of Mediterranean food at our fingertips, the smells of essential oils and rose water wafting through the room, plush pillows and fabrics to recline on, a belly dancer twirling, at intervals, to a live drum...

  • Featuring Acoustic Music by: Cameron Powers and Kristina Sophia, Jesse Manno and Brett Bowen:,,
  • Oriental Dance by: Berivan Sart and Tammie Beam
  • Cuisine by: The Organic Personal Chef: [masked]
  • Essential Oils and Aromatherapy with: Linda Lile, PhD:
  • Chair Massage with: Heather Neher

Join us to kick off this unique monthly event...Boulder's first European-style Salon!

Bring your own beverage and your favorite mystic poems!

    I loved our first Cafe de la Culture evening! The food was amazing, the environment warm and cozy, I heard a poem that touched me and inspired me, and the dancers were beautiful and filled the room with energy! Thank you, Cara, for such a carefully and thoughtfully planned out and executed evening. I look forward to more of these!

    Enchanting! A fine combination of spiritual discourse and cultural immersion by way of authentic Middle Eastern music, dance and food. Don't miss the next one on October 15!
