About Us


Situated in the heart of the CBD, The ArtHouse Hotel exudes inner-city retro chic. The heritage-listed venue dates back to 1836 when it served as The School of Arts. Therefore it has a name synonymous with art, music and entertainment.

Elegantly refurbished to reflect its heritage, original features of this distinctive building are evident in the high arched windows, impressive ceilings and stunning fireplaces.

This popular CBD watering hole caters for everything from a quick after-work drink to corporate functions, weddings, birthdays and group dinners. Also regularly hosting life drawing classes, music nights, and seasonal events.

Food and drink specials all week, plus lunch and dinner menus and bar food. You’ll find all the craft beers international spirits and a wine list featuring mostly Australian drops – many available by the glass.

Or something a little more special ask at the bar for the well-priced cocktails.
