How can you reach us?

Our address is Bulevardul Theodor Pallady 287. You can find information on how to reach us here or here.

The area has many parking spaces, especially in the evening or after 6 pm. The metro station at “1 Decembrie 1918” is the closest to us and it’s only 8 minutes away, on foot.

Take the small elevator (behind the large stairs on the ground floor) to the 5th floor, where you will see the sign for InFLUX. One more flight of stairs up, and you’re there. If mobility issues prevent you from climbing up a flight of stairs, you can take the large elevator, which will take you straight to our door, but that one is much slower.

Our phone number is +40723258105 and you can write to us on WhatsApp before the door closing time.

Who can come?

Everybody, and bring your friends, also! Fans of stand up comedy, performance art, queers and allies, join us! Whether you are part of the InFLUX community or are just coming to the space for the first time, we’d be happy to share this night of laughter with you!
