ABOUT Motley Bauhaus
Gallery & Artist Bars

The Motley Bauhaus is a completely unique, utterly independent and proudly inclusionary multidisciplinary art and craft house.

They are dedicated to promoting skills based art practices, encouraging intermingling across all disciplines and making art an everyday part of our lives.

The ethos of the space is derived from the Staatliches Bauhaus school opened in Germany in 1919 which combined art and craft, respected them equally, and believed they should be more integrated into the community. In that vein we are focused on promoting skills based arts practices and fostering creativity in the wider community by giving a home to artists of any and all disciplines and running various art and craft classes and related activity.

Our public bar and street-facing courtyard is a warm and welcoming space and the front of this multi-disciplinary arts venue.

We offer an extensive cocktail list, and quality spirits and wines, and, in the name of inclusivity, we are the first establishment to provide four O'Brien's gluten-free beer on tap.

Our comfy couches, timber finishings, and brass tones throughout makes it the perfect place to relax in after a long work day before seeing a performance in our theatre, cabaret stage, or climbing upstairs to see an exhibitions in our gallery.

Enjoy discovering what new and interesting shows, installations and workshops are on each week at this local artist hang out.

Located on the corner of Rathdowne and Elgin St in Carlton, close to La Mama Courthouse and the vibrant Lygon Italian strip.

We allow food of any kind delivered to the venue.

Happy hour is from 4pm-6pm and are open 4pm-late, Tues-Sat.
