Shwe Waa Deli Restaurant & Wine Bar, Arts & Coworking Space is a first of its kind, particularly for Mandalay. Shwe Waa brings together, under one roof, a place to enjoy home-made sandwiches, salads and other succulent dishes or snacks. We offer an abundant selection of international wines. Shwe Waa is a great place to simply relax on one of our four floors – inside or outside - whilst reading a book, to browse the internet or to meet up with friends and admire our arts & crafts, made by local artists in our very own Shwe Waa Shop.
The Arts Space provides a showcase for young talent, and makes our whole space available to them to exhibit, organise workshops and try new things or show off new techniques or styles, whilst adding an international dimension to their skills and training, if they like to. It aims to widen their scope, provide them with new possibilities and widen their creative sphere.
We also wanted to create an interesting space for students, ‘soon-to-be’ entrepreneurs, free-lancers, tutors and (language) teachers to come together, to develop their respective projects and to share ideas and see their projects take shape. So our Coworking Space refers to a shared working environment, often an office or similar space. Typically, it is attractive to work-at-home professionals, independent contractors, freelancers or start-up entrepreneurs looking to reduce their initial costs. Coworking also refers to the social gathering of a group of people who are still working independently, but who share values and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with people who value working in the same place alongside each other. And so, it grants digital-minded individuals ranging from start-uppers and freelancers, to bloggers and social entrepreneurs the independence to work compatible to their rhythm and to network with like-minded folks.
A lot of time has been spent into decorating Shwe Waa to bring together the traditional, the funky and the funny in all its details. We mixed the local and the less-local with fashion, arts, food & drinks and turn it in to an ‘IT’ place – but only for those who know to appreciate ;-) …
Lastly,at Shwe Waa we love pets, as one of our founders, named Bo Phyu, is himself a charming blond dog, so we welcome you and your sweet pet with his or her water bowl filled ‘on the house’.
