ARTHUR (which stands for Art House Urban Renewal) is a two-story wonderland, located at 66 Currie Street, full of immersive art and dining experiences for all to enjoy.
From giant bird nest sculptures that you can sit inside to late-night cabaret performances, the venue is a place where art, science and technology come together for one weird, wonderful party.
Cassandra Tombs, ARTHUR founder and creative director, describes the venue as a multi-storied community hall that hosts regular, creatively driven events.
Tombs has helped set up many of Adelaide’s creative hubs that house artistic experimentation, with this latest project amplifying it on a major scale. Tombs likes to get people out of their comfort zone through art experiences.
The venue is currently hosting Jim’s Restaurant and Gardening pop-up restaurant, a three-course degustation of vegetarian food brought to you by three very creatively minded friends.
The restaurant is operating for the rest of the month on Thursday July 9, Saturday July 18 and Saturday July 25 at 6pm.
The philosophy behind ARTHUR is to bring together people from different communities and walks of life in a collaborative space.
Tombs believes that great things happen when strangers meet and ARTHUR is a testament to that.
The space allows artists and creatives to mould the venue into any interpretation they’d like to showcase their work.
In August ARTHUR will host SA LA LA Land, a euphoric dream-like immersive experience presented by SALA.
ARTHUR will also have Mario Moretti and Al Dente open up an Italian Suit shop and restaurant, respectively, to hold a memorial for their nonnas funeral.
