Tijuana
Not just the dome at CECUT, but the very lively indie scene downtown==Pasaje Rodriquez. Runs through from the main drag, Revolucion, to Consitution, between 3rd and 4th.

It's a bunch of galleries that have all sorts of artistic events, but literary happenings tend to be at the bookstore Grafografo https://www.facebook.com/grafografo.cafebreria

Mazatlan

Hands down, the coolest place in town is the Altazor Arz Cafe on the Plazuela Machado downtown. Bookstore, cafe, live music venue, publisher of literary magazine, venue for literary festivals. And right there on the little plaza that is Mazatlan's cultural heart, across from the opera house and music conservatory.

I've sat at tables on the sidewak with international ballerinas, state political bigshots, cartel lieutenants, musicians from around the world, and many of Mexico's literary elite.
Read poetry backed up by saxophone.

Hector, the owner, is one of the city's literary angels.

Shanghai, China
The Peace Hotel cafe
Just off the Bund, without the visual distractions. An old hotel steeped in history with great coffee and you feel like you stepped back to the 1930's Shanghai.

Name of City/Town (and country): Oslo/Norway

Name of Hot Spot: Kulturhuset

What makes this spot so great for writers? If there is one café I should choose in Oslo where I write best it would without a doubt be Kulturhuset (you can find it on Youngstorget). The atmosphere is amazing and there are so many other creative souls working there as well. They have that relaxed and retro look through out the place and the coffee is good!
Definitely worth the trip if you're in the area.
