Café Europa may lose its space as parks group muscles into Cultural Center management

GREENSBORO, NC — Café Europa, a downtown anchor for 18 years, may lose its home in the Cultural Center beside LeBauer Park. On Jan. 25, Greensboro Downtown Parks Incorporated, the nonprofit organization empowered by the city to manage LeBauer Park, held a mandatory Request for Proposal meeting for all parties interested in bidding on Europa’s space, as well as the kiosk formerly operated by Noma. GDPI did not exist when Jakub Pucilowski purchased Europa in 2014. Pucilowski had worked for Europa founder John Rudy as a waiter and bartender since 2001. When he bought his retiring boss’s iconic establishment, his lease was with Greensboro Parks and Recreation, who continue to manage the other properties inside the Cultural Center.
