The Café Bar is the heart of our gallery, where great food and drink meets a wide range of exhibitions and events. Remember we’ve got free wi-fi, which makes it the ideal place to work from if you are out of the office.
Exhibitions & Events
The Café Space features a diverse range of events, from the regular After Hours open mic night (on the first Thursday of every month at 7pm), right through to debates and artist talks. A fast-changing exhibitions programme also means there is always something new to see when you visit.
Food & Drink
Not only can you enjoy an illy coffee or a pot of Portsmouth Tea, you can also indulge yourself with a slice of one of our delicious homemade cakes or grab a bite to eat from our mezze-inspired lunch menu. We also offer a range of teas, bottled beers, ales, cider and wines alongside soft drinks from San Pellegrino, Fentimans, Belvoir, James White and Coca-Cola. As part of the gallery, all profit from the cafe is reinvested to support our programme. Click to download a PDF of our drinks menu or our food menu.
Kids are Welcome!
We know some Cafés can be a bit stuffy about children – we are anything but! We have plenty of room for buggies, free craft tables, and fun menu choices, including favourites such as kids hot chocolate, Tunnocks Teacakes, Capri Sun cartons and baby cappuccinos. We are breast feeding friendly and have baby changing facilities!
Our Café Bar is also available for corporate events such as product launches, canape receptions, formal meetings and private parties. Please see our hire page for further details.
