Uptown’s Kanvas Gallery Brings Us Worldly Art… And Tapas

kanvas gallery

Kanvas Gallery has it all: mouthwatering small plates, a plethora of international art works, and a chic, modern aura. Making the hotspot even more special are its hours: Open until 2 a.m. on Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, the gallery provides locals with a luxurious late-night spot perfect for catching up with old friends while sipping on cocktail favorites.

The art lover’s paradise boasts paintings, fabric, glasswork, and sculptures by renowned Australian Aboriginal artists. The inviting, warm colors of the paintings work to deem the space as comfortable yet undeniably trendy one.

Although the spot is open for lunch Monday-Fridays, the tapas dinner menu offered Wednesday-Saturday nights gives customers the most authentic, cultural experience. With a wide variety of tapas such as the bourbon glazed baby back ribs with jalapeno slaw, the seasonal sauteed veggies served over quinoa and and kale, and the flatbread pizza of the day, the small plate menu satisfies many cravings.

Pair your tapas plate with one of the gallery’s handcrafted cocktails for an especially delicious meal. One summer favorite worth checking out is the Whisper in the Dark— a combination of cognac, blackberry, lemon, and a splash of prosecco. Other notable beverages include the Warm Night, which blends tequila, cucumber, jalapeno, and lime, and the Frisky Whisky, which features whiskey, honey, orange, and bitters.

In addition to the admirable artwork and fine food and drinks, Kanvas Gallery frequently hosts cultural events meant to unite the public through music, art, and discussion. The Mix and Mingle networking nights bring together local professionals, while the more laid back Prescribed Vinyl nights let guests experience the unparalleled crackling sound of a record while enjoying a small plate or specialty drink. Bringing together all that is culture, Kanvas Gallery is a must-visit for arts and culture appreciators across many varieties.
