Nearby the Waterworks museum one would find a Kontajner Riviéra, serving daily fresh and healthy food, delicious homemade cakes, Slovak coffee and a gallery, located on the second floor of the venue, promoting local culture. One might think that putting the word container in the name of the restaurant can be a bit risky, but the names goes right to the point. The building truly is built out of containers – the whole project is eco-friendly, the materials used in it are raw and natural so one would feel cozy and homey while being at the restaurant. In addition, all the furniture in the café is recycled and second hand which gives the venue a special, warm feeling.
