Bang in the centre of Bath, this is a great venues for small gigs. The sound is great, there is a good cafe downstairs and the bar (although small) serves local Bath Ales (amongst everything else). First time visit tonight but will be looking out for more gigs in their extensive upcoming programme.

Visited here twice to watch up and coming musical talent. A small cosy venue which was great. We loved the way it was set out with small round tables, candles etc It all added to the amazing music heard on both occasions. My only criticism would be that there is only a small bar available at the back of the... More

We went here for lunch twice in 2 days when we were in Bath. I'm a veggie so really appreciated all the veggie food. I had a Mexican flat bread on the first visit and a Minerva salad on the 2nd visit. Both were amazingly tasty and very filling. The prices are quite high but you do get quite big... More

Been to a couple of concerts here. A great medium-size performance space in the centre of Bath. Good example of a building being well re-purposed. Great cafe too.

We found this place following a suggestion for somewhere to eat that served ethical food from 'Visit Bath' staff. Tucked away below street level, this great little vegetarian cafe is hidden away but not far from the main shopping precinct. We were immediately greeted by friendly staff, a pleasant hubbub and fantastic ambience. It is very relaxed, cosy and comfortable.... More

There was a strange sense of being transported back in time when I visited Chapel Arts for the first time in November: in a good way! Unlike a lot of Bath cafes, there is a complete lack of trendy pretensions - eg lime-washed woodwork and little zinc buckets - but on the other hand a really relaxed, pleasant, uncomplicated cafe...

this isI visited this building during last evening 28.11.13 to see a documentary about Pussy Riot as part of the Bath film Festival 2013. I do not normally read other reviews before writing my own but in this case I noticed reviews about a cafe which I did not visit because it was closed. I must do so next time.... More
