Welcome to Cece’s Speakeasy.
A place for truth-seekers, chocolate lovers and coffee drinkers.
For those with a story to tell and those who want to listen.
A place to indulge in the forbidden delights of an espresso martini,
devour a hot chocolate and just kick back, relax and be yourself.
A place for the people.
Join us for a night of entertainment and hear storytellers, poets and musicians share new work exploring hope and action during the climate emergency.
