Polished and hip, Mutiny Information Cafe is not. And thank goodness for that, because its anything-goes vibe is part of what makes the space so attractive to young crust punks, low-key poets, old-school hip-hop heads and electro-freaks alike. Hidden in the back of this coffee shop/bookstore/pinball hall/comic and vinyl shop is a floor stage, a place for new musicians and old friends to hang out, see live performances and get inspired. Nobody's checking IDs at the door and no alcohol is served, reiterating the crucial point that at Mutiny Information Cafe, all-ages is always the rule and anyone can be a part of art as it happens, whether they're old enough to drink or not.
