The “Old Casino”, located in the “Simion Barnutiu” Central Park, is a Viennese-style palace that has been recently renovated. It hosts many of the spectacular cultural and artistic events in Cluj-Napoca, the beautiful capital of the Transylvania region.
The palace, a monument in itself, was built in the late 19th century in an eclectic Viennese style, by the famous architect Pakey Lajos (also architect of the New York Hotel, known also as the Continental Hotel, the Museum of Industry – today the building of the Technical University etc.) Over time, the building has served as Casino, Museum, Fine Arts School and restaurant. The local authorities of Cluj-Napoca restored the monument using EU funds. Today, the palace is destined to serve the arts and culture, hence the new name that was bestowed on it: Centrul de Cultura Urbana Casino (The Casino Urban Culture Centre).
All classes and all the night milongas (from Thursday until Sunday) will take place here.

Gazebo Central Park
The 50m2 octagonal gazebo is located at the heart of the Central Park. The gazebo is surrounded by umbrageous trees that make it a perfect location for special open-air milongas.
This is the venue we have chosen for our Saturday 19th of August special Milonga “La Glorieta” (from 19.00-22.00).
