Founded in 2008 by Andrew Chew, No Vacancy Gallery is a Melbourne-based contemporary hire-gallery that provides a link between artist run initiatives and the commercial art world. Since its inception, No Vacancy has promoted and exhibited local and international emerging artists, designers and curators.
No Vacancy is dedicated to showcasing the best of what Melbourne has to offer across a broad range of medium through curated group shows, solo exhibitions, festivals, launches, fashion shows, performances, workshops, one-off events, and more.
In 2016 No Vacancy QV installed an espresso bar operating Monday to Friday within the space inviting patrons to enjoy their coffee amongst the ever-changing artscape provided by the gallery.
The café currently serves coffee by St Ali and patisseries from local favourites Streat, Mork, Small Numbers and Short Stop. This space can be transformed into a bar in the evenings for special events.
