The art is amazing and local, the artists are friendly, laid back, and un-intrusive as you explore their artwork. Will definitely go again when I'm back in Kigali, and will likely buy some art (if I ever make money).

Rwanda is special. Everything about it tends to take your breath away, or flood you with emotions. Inema has this refreshing feel and a vibrancy of color that makes you not want to leave, for a moment.

Went for the Thursday night party, that offers good vibes (DJ), art gallery and good happy hour. Even if it was raining earlier the party was great and many happy people came. Recommended.
