Why we love it?

Amongst the often-chaotic and rapidly-changing Stokes Croft, the Arts House is a calming constant. With its distinctively large, curved windows facing out across a bustling junction, once inside the café is a soothing bastion of calm.

It's a jack-of-all-trades (in the best possible way), a loved-by-locals sort of destination where there’s genuinely something for everyone. There are big, comfortable padded chairs by the windows to enjoy a frothy cappuccino or tea from, and, at lunchtime, they knock-up paninis named-after Bristolian artists (both musical and visual). A Banksy or a Portishead, anyone?

As the day wears on, it seamlessly segues into a peaceful bar - perfect for a relaxed-date (you cultured thing, you) or a catch-up over a bottle of wine or local beer and some olives. True to its name, The Arts Café is also a hub for the arts - the walls showcase a variety of work from local artists, and downstairs they put on Gigs, Cinema events and Open-mic nights throughout the year.
