Surry Hills' hidden gem Beau, the intimate laneway bar from the NOMAD team, introduces its latest exciting collaboration with China Heights Gallery, bringing art to the table with its new Artist Series. For three months, Beau will play host to one prominent artist per month, coinciding with their exhibitions at China Heights. 

Ellen Virgona, Shaun Daniel Allen (Shal), and Otis Hope Carey are the featured artists, and they will transform the laneway setting into a unique and immersive artistic experience. Enjoy curated playlists, floral arrangements, projected visuals, artwork and a collaborative specialty dish inspired by their work.

To kick off the series, photographer Virgona will showcase her work from Friday, April 12, alongside a limited-edition dish of Greek-style rice pudding with caramelised figs. Head chef Troy Spencer has crafted this textural dish inspired by Virgona's rich and visceral imagery, a seemingly perfect autumnal dish. 

The event series brings contemporary art to the hospitality scene, blurring the lines between dining and gallery spaces. So be sure to check out this cultural fusion and experience art through a new lens.

Allen's stint starts on Friday, June 7, and Carey's on Friday, September 13.
