Nexus Art Cafe

Welcome to Nexus Art Cafe

Nexus Art Cafe is a creative community space in the heart of the city centre striving to build community based on an ethos of inclusion, respect and hospitality. Based on three corner stones of creativity, community and spirituality we operate a not-for-profit café and arts venue where we showcase the work of emerging creative practitioners, facilitate local grassroots organisations and work with our users towards sustainable community development projects.  Through our minister we further offer a number of spiritual activities linked to Sanctus 1 (a Christian community who meet here in the cafe twice a week).

Nexus Art Cafe is an exclusively alcohol-free venue which creates a safe place for people to come and relax without the pressure of drinking. We hold regular events, exhibitions and gigs for people to enjoy an alternative evening out.

Our lovely cafe, in which we always choose locally sourced produce, is the setting for an exciting and varied programme of events. Check out our menu below, venture down the stairs and give us a try!
