LONDON | The Newport Street Gallery in Vauxhaull is gallery that’s free to the public and contains rotating exhibitions featuring artworks from owner Damian Hirst’s private collection. The 37,000 sq ft, £25m gallery is housed in warehouses that used to be scenery-painting workshops, which were built to supply the booming West End theatres. The gallery architects, Caruso St John (Tate Britain extension, Nottingham Contemporary, New Art Gallery Walsall) have made good use of the space, with the high ceilings and natural lights being used to great effect to create spaces which serve the art well and encourage contemplation.

As one would expect, the exhibitions contains all kinds of weird and wonderful artworks from artists like Jeff Koons, Richard Prince and John Hoyland. For those in need of a feed, upstairs is home to a restaurant collaboration with Mark Hix, Pharmacy 2, which is a pharmacy themed restaurant and a bit of a homage to Hirst’s short-lived Notting Hill restaurant which opened in 1998.

This part of town has slowly been turning into an arts district, and the Newport Street Gallery provides even more of a reason to get here and take in some brilliant art.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
