Along with our office… where you’ll find us most of the time, we have a lovely cafe – the RCAfé and the infamous Artbar! We’re located one the 2nd floor of the Frayling Building in Kensington campus. Come and hang out here. It’s a hub. The terrace overlooking the Royal Albert Hall isn’t bad either.

The food in the RCAfé made by Baxter Storey and the space is managed by the SU.

The Artbar opens from 5.30pm to 10.30pm. You are very welcome to host your own events here too. Just email our events co-ordinator Alex (alex.culshaw@rca.ac.uk) and she’ll be in touch with you. One thing to note is that the bar can’t be privately booked: If we’re open then we remain inclusive to all.

RCA students work in the Artbar - making it a great place to meet people from different courses. We also run pop-up bars across the other two campuses for events.

Both the RCAfe and Artbar are open Mon-Fri during term time only.
