Overview
More
The Ventnor Exchange is the town's unique creative hub. Located in a former Post Office the building now houses a studio theatre, record store and craft beer bar with over 40 guest beers. It's the best place on the Island to catch innovative new work, as well as the perfect place to browse vinyl, meet friends and relax with like minded people. The Ventnor Exchange is also the HQ for the annual Ventnor Fringe and Ventnor International Festival, held every August.

Excellent atmospher, brilliant unusual bar and venue. An amazing selection of craft beers and lovely friendly staff. My family really enjoyed the selection of vinyl records available on sale. I would definitely recommend especially the music and artistic officiados.

Saw a very good production of Mistero Buffo which was extremely well suited to this compact but versatile theatre bar. Very nice to be seated on a comfy sofa with a proper drink in your hand for a theatrical presentation.

Friendly owners who also host the fringe festival. Made us very welcome to browse vinyl on sale, reasonably priced bar and hot drinks, comfy retro style seating. Some kind of interesting board game being played by a group of regulars. Will definitely return.
