The Venue

Authentic and steeped in history, the Gentlemen's Arthouse is housed in a PHRAG-listed 1911 stand alone building, in the historic Market Theatre district in Newtown, Johannesburg. Sensitively restored over a three-year period by multi award-winning design practice, LIFE Interiors | Architecture | Strategic Design, the Arthouse is an ode to an age gone by by with contemporary relevance evidenced in its cheeky restoration and in the introduction of its contemporary South African Art collection. 

The Food & Drink

Decadent and dramatic, extreme and eccentric - though never foregoing terrific taste and perfect provenance from passionate purveyors - the food & drink offering at the arthouse is an experimental and evolving experiential journey for connoisseurs who appreciate fine food & crafted cocktails in an elegant environment. 

The Entertainment

In the triparte offering that is the Gentlemen's Arthouse - Food, Drink & Entertainment - we have curated a host of unusual performers and interactive hosts ranging from sultry chanteuses, jazzy singers, tasteful burlesques, vinyl DJs, fire-eaters, strongmen, acrobats, trapeze artists, Cuban cigar-rollers, master-brewers, spoken-word poets and eccentric performers with unusual & exceptional skills in both the interior and courtyard spaces of the Gentlemen's Arthouse.
