Tulum Art Club
This one-of-a-kind space opened in downtown Tulum in early 2016 and is dedicated to arts and culture. There's a café with seating in the front, and the gallery is behind it, with art for sale on the walls and on sliding dividers. Most of the art (paintings, sketches, photographs, graphic art) is from an artists’ residency program the owners have been running on the beach for six years, with a mix of international and local artists. There's also a lofted workspace that can be rented out. The Tulum Art Club hosts weekly rotating events: drink and draws (exactly what it sounds like) on Tuesday; movie screenings on Wednesday; and live music, lectures, and other events on Thursday and on weekends. This is a fantastic place to meet artists and like-minded locals. And finally, there's a one-room hotel on the second floor (available on Airbnb) so visiting artists can stay in the middle of the action.
