The Exhibit


The Exhibit is an independent neighbourhood bar, restaurant, cinema and event space. The contemporary venue is spread across three floors with a collection of private hire and outside spaces – the perfect location for socialising.

From hot desking in the week to trying out life drawing on a Wednesday, sipping on cocktails in the studio speakeasy to dancing under the disco ball in the Gallery, after-work drinks to long lazy brunches, a quick pint with lunch to a late night feast. At The Exhibit you will find it all under one roof, perfectly paired with regular entertainment and events. Open until 2am every Friday & Saturday.
