Zubi Expresso in Newport – a “Place”


Live Music

We hear a lot about placemaking  but what actually is a “place” and how do you make one?

Could Zubi Expresso Bar in Newport be the perfect example of a “place” and “placemaking”. Could it be that it has:

  • A stunning garden setting with a large variety of plants which teach the importance of nature?
  • Movable chairs and tables, perfect for chasing the sun in winter and shade in summer?
  • Garden rooms, some ideal for groups, others for intimate get togethers, some yet perfect for a quite read or contemplation?
  • zubi-gardenGreat coffee and food
  • Quirky interactive art which children can weave wool around?
  • Places and spaces for fairies to dance?
  • A setting for Great icons of music, present and future, to jam and be enjoyed?

Visit Zubi Expresso and be the judge. Is this placemaking in action?
