Just a few blocks south of Ștefan cel Mare, Acuarela is a living, breathing piece of art in progress. Everything here screams handmade, handpicked, collected with love, to build a one-of-a kind home for artlovers and artists, featuring jazz concerts and jam sessions, indie theatre, photography, live drawing, contemporary art vernissages and fairs. If it is indeed a bistro with good craft beer, burgers and some vegan options, all its proceeds go to the artistic and cultural association Imbold that has its gallery in the main house (one that could very well be your grandma’s if she’d been to art school). The attic (or mansarda) is a super cozy hangout where you’ll sometimes catch a screening. The garden is where you’ll wanna hang out with your friends under Acuarela’s now-iconic skyline of coloured umbrellas. If it starts raining cats and dogs, you’ll hardly be protected. But that’s exactly the right time to grab the water colors and brushes you’ll find on the table and start being creative.
