The Arnolfini is an internationally acclaimed arts venue with ongoing shows, exhibitions and the like. It is situated in a historic building which just adds to its appeal. Situated on the harbor, it has a cinema (showing art house and foreign-language films), visual art galleries (the only place in the city large enough to cater for major artists), and a cafe-bar. there is also a small bookshop. You can also find performance art, and author events going on every so often. The cafe-bar is particularly popular, where snacks and main meals, all with a Mediterranean flavor, are available daily. It's especially wonderful in the summers when locals relish chilled beers by the quayside.
