Since opening back in 2011, Freda's has been Chippendale's go-to watering hole for Sydney's creative community. It's also been instrumental in the neighbourhood's music and arts scene. So, it's no wonder that the bar, a bit further down the track, went on to open its own basement gallery: Down / Under Space.

Down / Under is the kind of lo-fi, multi-disciplinary and (literally) underground space you would expect from Freda's, too. Run by artists, curators and filmmakers, the space hosts everything from exhibitions and openings, performance art, film, live music, group shows, solo shows and everything in between. It's a space that fosters emerging artists and Sydney's creative community — something that can be hard to find in this city.

Here, you'll find boundary-pushing works, a buzzing atmosphere and plenty of experimentation at this multi-arts space. Plus, after you get your art-fix, you can head up to the bar for a drink and some live tunes.
