Food, music, reasonably priced clothing and local artisans goods. Every Sunday local musicians perform jazz and upbeat music. Very entertaining.

Lots of local branded hand made products, from colorful cloth toys and bags to home decor. Really enjoyable shopping experience. I brought some local tea and body care products there. Clothing is a bit too big for me (small size).

An exquisite place to get traditional Sri Lankan gift items. Great selection under one roof. A bit priced on th high side but a sure place to visit in Colombo.
