Cafe and Bar
Situated at the heart of the city's Cultural Precinct, Christchurch Art Gallery is conveniently located for a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants to suit all budgets. Whether you're after a sit down meal for thirty people, or just a quick coffee before heading upstairs to explore the Gallery's collection, you won't be disappointed.
On the ground floor in the Gallery, Alchemy Restaurant and Bar is a great place to meet friends or just sit and read the book you bought in the Gallery Shop. Watch out for promotional deals linked to the Gallery's exhibition programme. Alchemy is open to Gallery visitors and the general public alike – visit the Alchemy website to see their menu.
There is a wide range of cafés and bars within a two-minute walk. The nearby Arts Centre offers a number of restaurants, coffee stops and sweet treats, including a farmers' market on Fridays.
UPDATE: Due to the earthquake Alchemy Restaurant and Bar is currently closed.
