We came down to visit and we found Art Bar on trip advisor. Man did we have a good time. Never knew art would be so fun. Especially with the friendly staff.

Great spot to visit on First Friday. It would be good if they provided a little more information outside each space on the artists or a general overview. However, great to wander and enjoy a little wine.

Wander through the two floors (with elevator) of this restored historic bldg. in downtown Raleigh, poking into the many individual working art studios to see some excellent works. The are usually art shows here and may be first Friday events and other special events.

As an artist myself, I am always curious about other artists! Watching them work, observing their techniques and styles, and enjoying seeing their creative space is always so cool. Even if the artist isn't in their studio you can still get a glimpse inside their mind by seeing their layout and works-in-progress, and when they are there, many artists are... More

There are two floors of art studios and a couple of classrooms. Of course art is for sale throughout. This adjoins or is part of the City Market. This... More

My daughter had an exhibition here on First Friday. Very innovative space with mixture of individual workspace galleries and larger exhibition rooms. I was impressed with the artists there and would go back.
