With a history dating back to 1836 when it served as The School of Arts, the distinctive Arthouse building, with its grand fixtures and old-world charm has become a central meeting place for everyone. City workers to free spirit artists descent upon Arthouse to marvel at the beautiful surroundings and enjoy the quality food and beverages with a group of friends. The expansive areas across the venue lends The Arthouse to spectacular events and functions of any size.

The Arthouse offers a varying food and beverage menu depending on the location of your get together. The downstairs bar menu is comprised of generous Modern Australian inspired meals such as salt and pepper squid, soft shell crab Thai salad and ricotta gnocchi served alongside an extensive beer, wine, spirit and cocktail list served in the beautiful and grand space of the ground floor area.

The Dome Restaurant offers a fine dining experience in awe-inspiring surroundings. Quality gourmet dishes such as Martini cured ocean trout served with wasabi, red radish and baby herbs for entre, Oven roast pork cutlet served with red cabbage, crumbed apple and crackling for main and scrumptious Blue berry brulee served with almond tuile for dessert excite the tastebuds of everyone who has the privilege of tasting them. The Dome's wine list is of the highest quality and compliments the food perfectly.
They have also just begun a cocktail degustation, which is a must-do experience, available every Thursday night.
As soon as you enter The ArtHouse Hotel, you get the sense that there's been a lot of history created within its walls. The building itself dates back to 1836 and was once home to The School of Arts. However, today's ArtHouse is home to a stylish taproom, four bars and the elegant dining room aptly titled Dome. High gilded ceilings, 19th century plasterwork and large arched windows set the stage for an elegant dining experience at Dome Restaurant. Guests can start with a drink in the lounge before taking a seat in the large dining area complete with white-clothed tables and polished wooden floors. The refined menu commands as much respect as the restaurant's surroundings with dishes such as squid ink linguine, Chinese marinated quail and New Zealand salmon.

In keeping with the hotel's artistic bent, Dome also doubles as an exhibition area for hanging artworks by Sydney artists. The ArtHouse also regularly features creative arts events such as life drawing, art exhibitions, burlesque, cabaret and DJ/club nights.
