Who are we

Muxima is an independent arts space in the heart of Bow. Known and loved by locals since its arrival on Roman Road in 2013, Muxima has been extensively renovated during 2020 and has reopened with an enlarged event & exhibition space, and a new lounge bar.

Our story

Muxima first opened its doors in 2011. Set up by an artistic collective, Muxima was launched as a community arts hub and cafe where art in its varying forms brought people together of all backgrounds, ages and genders to eat, dance, chat and collaborate. A cafe by day and an afro-tapas restaurant by night, Muxima’s history is also tied to a love of good food and a community kitchen vibe.

“A New Era”

Now in 2021, Muxima is reopening its doors, still bringing an abundance of art to Bow and beyond, but with visual art and music being the main focus. Food will be served on special occasions for pop-up dinners and ad hoc events. Our events programme will continue to be broad and inclusive; spanning genres and celebrating all cultures. Whatever the artistic output, collaboration has and always will be at the 'heart' of Muxima. Please get in touch if you wish to collaborate.

The Muxima aesthetic

Muxima’s unique Angolan-influenced decor, including all of our hand-crafted furniture, is now available to purchase. We will soon have an online shop but for now, please pop by to see if anything takes your fancy.
