Description
The Little Blowhole Art Bar is situated on a hill overlooking its namesake, between Easts & Kendalls beaches in beautiful unspoilt Kiama, the gateway to the New South Wales South Coast. Under new management since February 2016, the Art Bar is the love-child of new locals Jamie Cole and Bruce Ferguson's life work. Combining their passion for all things edible, drinkable, groove-able and paint-able, the Art Bar features monthly exhibitions from local and global artists, and regular special events. Open Wednesday to Sunday for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Grab your crew, your life preservers, and head over to Kiama's worst kept secret. Keep an eye on the Little Blowhole Art Bar website and social media channels for updates, news, special events and more.
