About

Introducing The Arthouse

Liverpool is getting ready to welcome the new kid on the block, the Arthouse - a creative co-working space that houses flexible art studios, an art gallery and a bar & restaurant, all under one roof.

Here at the Arthouse we feel passionate about the arts, whatever your chosen medium; be it paint or the written word, we've got a space for you to use as and when the need arises. When you're done with work for the day you can unwind in the contemporary and relaxed bar and restaurant, which is seamlessly blended with our immersive art gallery; you might even get a buzz if our other guests are admiring one of your works of art on display.

We've set out to create a space that is a little different from other galleries.  We're believers in making art available for everyone; our immersive gallery set within our bar & restaurant does exactly that.  Formal gallery settings are great, but we prefer to make our artist's work as visible as possible to as many people as possible - our guests get to soak in the art on display while they indulge on their fashionable gin cocktail and enjoy their meal.

In a Nutshell

Our space is for you - the people - to enjoy!  Whether you're an artist looking for space to work or are in need of a gallery to represent your work; maybe you just enjoy great food and drinks in a pretty surround, then we're for you.

So...Why Kickstarter

We're investing a huge sum of money into this project, but we could do with the final push from some very lovely people - we thought what's better than involving the community and getting some early pre-sales, which will help make the whole project happen that little bit quicker.  As a thank you we've got some fantastic rewards on offer.  Check some of the highlights below!

A Badge of Honour

Choose from our branded badges, or go for a print of original pieces of art by one of our resident artists.

Award Winning Afternoon Tea

Our sister bar and restaurant, Freemasons Knutsford, currently #1 on Trip Advisor, has taught us a thing or two when it comes to afternoon tea.  We're taking this knowledge and creating what will be our Legendary Afternoon Tea at the Arthouse.  We look forward to welcoming you to enjoy your reward.

 The Bar & Restaurant - Whats on Offer

Our Bar & Restaurant, which is placed within the gallery area, will offer a relaxed and contemporary space for guests to unwind and appreciate the atmosphere; enjoying the artwork, the food, the cocktails and most of all the great service and attention to detail. 

A relaxed menu that revolves around our freshly prepared deli boards, sushi and volcanic lava stones will be on offer; this is where you can cook your own steak, fish or cheese right at your table on our 440'c lava stones.

Master at the Arthouse

We're going to have an exciting range of master classes available from a number of talented artisans waiting to share their knowledge and skill with you. Whether you're into wine tasting and learning about viticulture or you'd like to learn how to paint using flow, then we'll have a class that suits you. Our master class is a great opportunity to learn a new skill and makes a fantastic gift for your friends and loved ones. 

Original Examples From Our Resident Artist

If you decide to go for one of the original canvas rewards, then here is an example of some our resident artists work. This represents a fantastic saving from the usual retail price.  Each piece will be made just for you, to tie in with a colour scheme of your choice.  These are limited to 10 pieces. 

A Seat on the Board

One of our exciting rewards aimed at companies, but is open to individuals too, is a seat on our board.  You'll help shape our community work as we grow.  We'll be launching the Arthouse foundation, which will provide art therapy for people affected by Cancer, Alzheimer's, Dementia, Anxiety, Autism and PTSD - and you or your company can be a part of it! Limited to 4 board positions available.

Other Rewards

Our other rewards listed are also noteworthy, some might say we've left the best until last.

  • VIP launch invites
  • Have a "legacy studio" named after you or a loved one
  • Your name or a loved one's emblazoned in one of our sculptures

Risks and challenges

With every endeavour there are always risks and challenges involved - that being said, by backing this project you're assured that you're backing an established and reputable bar and restaurant operator - an operator with a passion for the arts and with a desire to help artists and artisans flourish and grow as we do.

We're fortunate that we have a committed and experienced team to help this project reach it's conclusion, and we look forward to welcoming your backing in return for our rewards, to help us deliver the Arthouse that little bit quicker.
