Help Us Keep The Doors Open

YADA Collective is a Community Interest Company – This means we put people before profit and exist to make the world a better place. primarily through the provision of social spaces that remove the focus on alcohol. Our bar has helped people through loneliness, we’ve helped people to connect with others by uniting passions and cultures, and we’ve helped lift the voices of previously unheard people.
