Space Academy is a multi-use space with coffee, food and beer, as well as host to a variety of talks, exhibitions and events. It features a nascent reference library and is publishing its first book. There is even a pint-sized hair salon (Doki) in front.
The bar takes over from Kadett Cafe at 4pm and features craft beer, wine and cheese from Christchurch and around New Zealand. A great place for drinking and thinking.
