Nightlife spot metamatic:taf began operating in May 2009 in the neighborhood of Monastiraki in Athens. This vibrant venue serves a dual role as an independent space - organizing and hosting cultural events related to all forms of artistic production - and a point of social gathering, especially for people bearing a new Athenian identity.

Within just four years of operation, matamatic:taf has become an active space of sociability, in which everyone is welcome to attend, participate or watch events. It's an open space of assembly and dialogue that's accessible to the public seven days a week and all year long.
Throughout this four-year course, metamatic:taf has showcased a number of cultural activities based upon creativity, community, diversity and the need for reflection on daily issues; during this period, metamatic:taf has welcomed an average of 200,000 visitors per year. These visitors get free access for almost all of the venue's events, which include visual arts, music, literature, theater and dance performances.
What is more, metamatic:taf aims to support local entrepreneurship initiatives by promoting (via its bar area) food and beverage products of excellent quality from all over Greece.
Everything considered, metamatic:taf is a platform for the exchange of current ideas and practices. This Athens cultural center is where thought is not being separated from action, and culture is conceived as an everyday actuality. metamatic:taf offers a complete artistic, educative and recreational experience.
