Abstract: Being the major public space of writer’s meetings, Konradas café was especially popular among the literati. Therefore, this article aims to analyse Konradas café as a space of active intellectual life on the one hand, and a place of banal scandals, on the other. A particular attention is given to the most characteristic situations and features of the café and its micro-society. Finally, the reasons of the popularity of the café and its role in the life of the literati are discussed. Due to the fragmentary sources, it is practically impossible to reveal a thorough and comprehensive picture of Konradas café. An attempt is made to portray at least a partial view of a daily life of one of the cafes in interwar Kaunas. During the discussed period of time, Konradas café in the Laisvės Alley held the status of the “second home” of the literati, and the centre of public life. Spending time in cafes became one of the ways of life. Literary intellectuals of different viewpoints gathered in Konradas café, often at the same table, to spend their time and discuss intellectual and common everyday topics. The reminiscences reveal a dynamic picture of the café, full of diverse visitors and “Konrad-like” stories. Although Konradas café was typically associated with the intellectual club of literati, its visitors were from the different layers of society
