    Description

    My name is Ghaith, i have started the first bookshop in my town, a social active bookstore, a cultural space for youth in Madaba, with a friendly environment that encourages reading culture through social engagement activities.

    we are currently under expansion and our profile will be as follows:-

    Our Cultural bookstore is determined to become a daily necessity for local people, vistors and tourists from all around, a place to dream of as you try to escape the daily stresses of life and experience something new, a comfortable place to meet your friends or to read a book, all in one. With the growing demand for high-quality gourmet coffee, food and great service, we will capitalize on its proximity to the City of Madaba and its seroundigs to build a healthy ennvironment, where cultural activities and knowledge sharing fuse to evoke and spread new social values. through out our unique selection of books, the bookshop will bring a special experience with book culture to its visitors.

    Our Culture will make its best efforts to create a unique place where visitors can socialize with each other in a comfortable and relaxing environment while enjoying the best brewed coffee and local food in town. Food selection will be from the heart of the Madabian home, reflecting seasonal local food, our kitchen will adapt itself to fit every seasons spiciality, where engridiants such as herbs and some veggies, will be produced at our organic garden, merged with the space, to bring an extra excusit experience in local culture.

    The new space is situated in one of the oldest family houses in Madaba, loved for its unique architecture, dating back to 1910, located between Saint Goerge church and uptown area.

    We will host many social activities and workshops for its neighboring community, such as open air cinema, concerts, reading club, up-cycling workshops, gardening workshops..ets
