The Gentlemen's Arthouse

  Newtown Junction (next to the City Lodge Hotel), Newtown      +27 10 592 1911     more than a year ago
created 29 Jun 2016
The latest new opening in the revitalised Newtown precinct is The Gentlemen's Arthouse, a flamboyant events venue and cocktail bar that is available for private functions and for 'curated evenings' every Thursday which are set to feature incredible cocktails, food and live entertainment (booking is essential).

The venue occupies a Victorian Gentlemen's washroom which dates back to 1911. Inside it has been decorated with the most meticulous attention for detail in a quirky Victorian style with unusual antiques such as old samovars and ash trays shaped like clam shells and contemporary artworks by the likes of William Kentridge and Norman Catherine. The most spectacular design elements are the building's original features which have been restored and updated - for example the century-old porcelain urinals have been upholstered in plush velvet and refashioned into seats. For details on the food menu and drinks list visit their website and for bookings email reservations@gentlemensarthouse.com or call +27 10 592 1911.
