We went to 3S Artspace for the James McMurtry solo show on April 11. What a great venue and really cool people running it.The restaurant/kitchen wasn't open for us that night but the gallery and performance room was.

The performance space is intimate, not real bad seat in the house. They even have couches to lounge on.

Sound system and lighting are top notch.

Can't wait to go back again!

3S Arts is a very unique space encompassing a Theater/Music venue, farm to table restaurant and Art Gallery. I opened this March and has become a local go to place for lunch and dinner as well as a place to check out a theater show or concert. I really enjoyed my dinner there the other night and seeing the show in the art gallery. Planning on going back for a concert soon. Off the beaten path and one of the unique places I would recommend.

small room, ideal for live concerts. everyone is up close to the band. acoustics are fine. I am disabled and the staff accommodated me perfectly -- reserved chairs right up front, even though this was a general admission, standing up kind of show. very interesting roster of musicians coming to 3s Artspace this year.

Every community needs a space for the arts. 3S Artspace has a small but adequate space for performances, a large room for the display of paintings and other graphic arts, and rooms for rehearsals and more intimate meetings.

This was a fun venue - we saw a musical group here and enjoyed it. We did not eat in the restaurant, but have heard it's good

Recently attended a film screening here. Wonderful venue with an art gallery, event space and eating option too. New on the Portsmouth scene for contemporary art experiences.

Wow. We came up from the Boston Area the Sat night after Thanksgiving and we're blown away by the 3SArtspace, and overall size of the place and the quality of the music.

A local band started the night with very approachable music with a wonderful keyboard player and a voice that brought me back to Neal Young.

We came up to see the sandwich band, Mail the Horse; just off a Citi Field Show, which followed Bonnaroo and SWSW appearance last spring. How cool to have them here in a room that seemed packed with a capacity 400 fans, most who seemed to know and "get" who Mail the Horse is, and what they are up to.

They didn't disappoint. MYH was amazing! A non stop mix of Tom Waits meets The Rolling Stones. Southern Rock to a king of psychedelic Pink Floyd.

The Fruit Bats finished the night in good form, starting with some oldies and moving into their new work, which came off well. Their veteran fans loved it, and they made some new MTH friends, that's for sure.

I went for a cocktail at 10:45 and found three women and one man at the bar. I was promptly told that they were closed. The three woman and one man at the bar all had full drinks and clearly no incentive to leave.
Perhaps I wasn't cool enough, not sure. I was dressed trendy and had money to spend.
I will not be going back, as there are plenty or friendly bars in Portsmouth to spend your money at.
