Choosing a Location

Science Cafés are traditionally held in a casual setting such as a local coffee shop, bar, bookstore, or restaurant. However, some cafés are held at science museums or other similar venues.

Things to Consider when Choosing a Venue

  • What size audience do you expect? Can the venue accommodate your audience?
  • Will there be a charge for using the space at the venue?
  • Is there a separate area available for your science café?
  • What food and drink are available at the venue?
  • Does the venue have any audio/visual equipment you will need?
  • Is the venue in an area accessible by your target audience?
