Hastings Hawkes Bay, gallery venue
This beautiful historic building interior is spacious gallery with a mezzanine floor encircling the room and an art deco feel, high ceiling and lovely lighting. Large windows in the front façade, windows in the upper level and a stained glass ceiling give a touch of old fashioned class.
The most striking feature of the interior is the central staircase, reputedly inspired by Parisian department stores of the early 1900s. It provides a good natural stage for a presentation.
Since 1991, the building has been the home of Arts Inc Heretaunga (previously Creative Hastings) and has undergone significant restoration work to bring it back to its former glory.
This exhibition space is available to hire for suitable events: book launches, art talks, awards and presentations, poetry readings.

We are sorry, there are no reviews yet for this accommodation.
Hastings, paired with Napier as the twin cities of the region, has not only a vibrant city, but the very varied surrounding hinterland of Hawke’s Bay. From traditional and modern vineyards to the coast and the hills, Hastings has venues for business and leisure, weddings and parties.
Known for food and wine, Hastings does entertainment well and stages a wide range of events. With it’s settled and glorious weather this is the destination for outdoor events for a larger part of the year.
It only rains for about 2 months – unfortunately no one knows which two months. But for an outdoor event, Hastings is a very good bet.
