Drake is filled with thoughtful contradictions and a playful intersection of old and new. We opened on Valentine’s Day, 2004 with lots of love for the historic relationship between artists and great hotels; a community-minded spirit is something close to our hearts. Urban and artistic hotels have played a big role as hang-outs for the local creative scene - aka you - so these are the ideas that inspired us to create a community-minded hotbed for culture.
From free neighbourhood pancake breakfasts
to promoting local artists, supporting our friends and neighbours has been a big part
of our mission since day one. >>
If you’re into contemporary art, we’ll definitely get along - those who know us best say we’re a hotbed for culture. Read about what goes on in the art world at Drake! >>

This exhibition builds on the tradition of landscape photography, exploring how contemporary artists continue to experiment with ways of representing land and cityscapes, in an ongoing effort to represent the essence of place.
