  • Visitor Information

Macondo is a fictional town described in Gabriel García Márquez's novel One Hundred Years of Solitude. This is possibly where this art showroom and venue gets its name. It includes a cafe/bar in trendy Hoxton Square where you can read, dream, share your ideas, get inspired and sip on a drink while munching and socialising.
