Welcome to The Art House – an art cafe, gallery and venue in the heart of Southampton. We bring people together over art, tea and cake.
Home grown, community run, not-for-profit, handmade, quirky and original, our space offers a relaxed place to connect with your creativity and enjoy wholesome, homecooked food.
The Art House was created in 2007 as a space for grassroots, fringe and outsider art. We offer an eclectic programme of events, workshops and performances.
All of these lovely things are housed in our award winning cafe with a licenced bar, which is open during the day and most evenings, serving food, drinks, snacks and cakes.
If you are looking for a creative gathering place that’s different from anywhere you’ve ever been, a place that welcomes the unexpected and unusual, you will feel very at home here.
In the words of one of our visitors – “A place where I can be myself, feel welcome, safe and with like minded people”
These are just some of the things going on at The Art House – we also have a busy programme of regular events, groups, workshops and live music.
