In order to enhance Memphis’s creative community and to provide a vision for the renovation of the historic Sears Crosstown building, Crosstown Arts were founded in 2010. Co-founders Christopher Miner and Todd Richardson saw enormous potential for a multidisciplinary modern arts center in the 1.5 million square feet of space when they stood in front of the Sears, Roebuck & Co. distribution building in Midtown Memphis. Crosstown Arts worked to open several new locations over a few years, including galleries, The Green Room music venue, the cafe, Art Bar, artist residency studios and flats, a shared art-making space, and the 419-seat Crosstown Theater.
The full-service Art Bar at Crosstown Arts offers a carefully chosen selection of wines, craft beers, and a menu of inventive, artistic cocktails. Drinks on the cocktail menu are crafted with regional, seasonal, and foraged ingredients from Memphis and other parts of the world. For non-drinkers, they serve kombucha on tap and the Mockingbird drink, which is made with cucumber lime cordial, grapefruit, housemade non-alcoholic lemongrass, eucalyptus tincture, and tonic. You can pair your drinks with Brie Crostini with Apples and Pecan, Greek Hummus Dip, or Floats.
All of Crosstown Arts’ venues and initiatives are dedicated to the value of diversity and to giving all Memphis residents continuing access to opportunities for creative interchange.
