The Margate Arts Club is an intimate 150 capacity venue, that feels like a house party. We have been putting on gatherings with a nod to the David Mancuso/loft party ethos for since 2014. Gaining a cult following and a great reputation in the underground avant-garde music world and dance music scene. Our stunning sound system made by EM Acoustics, Linea research and tuned by Autograph audio is quality rather than bass heavy thumping.

The Margate Arts Club is a community interest company; the events we programme help cover the cost of the running of the building and enable us to host daytime events and workshops and offer the space to community groups for free. We work with local charities and organisations such as Mencap, POW Thanet and Margate Pride. The events also help support local individuals that need the space for projects and rehearsals. Our window is an ever-changing gallery to local artists.
