Cafe Cheshmeh opens up as a flexible rental space; as a therapy space, seminar room, live show, dance performance, screening, workshop, etc. Just tell us what you wish to do at Cheshmeh, and we will try our best to make it happen.
However, Cheshmeh is a tiny space in the middle of the residential area run by a personal business owner. We can’t deal with the large amount of garbage, blasted full-on band, crazy drinking party... afterall it’s a community-based family running space.

We are more than happy to support your ideas, help your promotions and preparations, but please remember. YOU are the main person to take action. Some people act like an arrogant superstar - wouldn't check the details, too proud to promote, show up fashionably late and complain about everything. Please, please work with us, the mutual respect, or we will have to ask you to leave.
