About
The Ventnor Exchange is the town's unique creative hub. Located in a former Post Office the building now houses a studio theatre, record store and craft beer bar with over 50 guest beers. It's the best place on the Island to catch innovative new work, as well as the perfect place to browse vinyl, meet friends and relax with like minded people. The Ventnor Exchange is also the HQ for the annual Ventnor Fringe.

Having walked past this place multiple times and not noticing it was there, it was recommended to us as somewhere in ventnor to go with a great atmosphere. This was an accurate recommendation.

The service was brilliant, they had some nice snacks (not large quantities so don't go here for dinner), and catered for both vegetarian and gluten intolerances.

The selection of 50-70 beers kept my husband happy and they had a nice small selection of cocktails with a very large selection of other spirits, so I was happy with my gins!

Great atmosphere, wonderful selection of records to look through and a true cafe vibe.

An old post office transformed into bar, coffee stop, vinyl shop and venue. Very friendly staff happy to put some ice on a plate for our ice obsessed spaniel whilst we drank cocktails. Cocktails and vinyl for sale is a dangerous combination. A superb place for a drink. Great beer menu too.

We stopped off here for a refreshment after walking the Shanklin to Ventnor Coastal Path. The beer selection mostly focuses on Belgian styles which is the barman’s interest but personally, I would appreciate a few more stouts and imperials. But the place was nice and the service friendly with good social distancing!

Really didn’t know what to expect when my sister and I visited the lovely Ventnor Exchange on Sunday evening to see this play. We settled down with a gin and tonic and really really enjoyed it! Once we took on board how the actors were performing it was great! Arty venue, intimate and comfortable. Pouring with rain outside but who cares, we were in Jaywick, Shine on ...

Really enjoyed the show Bane we saw here this week. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a great atmosphere. We will be back to sample the tea and coffee but the wine and beer went down well!

Our second visit to Ventnor fringe, although this time as performers. The exchange is the hub of the festival, the place for tickets, info, events and so much more. Staff are friendly and it has a lovely vibe. If you missed the Fringe this year put it on your list for 2019.

Went along to the first event of the Spring at The Exchange. Saw 'Mistero Buffo' performed by Rhum & Clay Theatre Co. Didn't quite know what to expect only that it was a one-man retelling of The Bible. What I wasn't expecting was such thought provoking, challenging theatre from an incredibly talented performer. Ventnor was privileged to host such a treat of theatrical performance. The sole actor adapted his voice and stance and filled the stage with what seemed like a hundred actors. This intense performance, along with the emotion and reflection provoked will stay with us for a very long time. Well done to The Exchange for arranging such first class theatre. Cannot wait for the next event.

Saw a very good production of Mistero Buffo which was extremely well suited to this compact but versatile theatre bar. Very nice to be seated on a comfy sofa with a proper drink in your hand for a theatrical presentation.
