About Us

Smith's purpose is to celebrate local culture and provide a safe and comfortable place for it to be developed, presented and appreciated. Open nearly every day of the year, we aim to have something happening on every one of those days, including music, poetry, comedy, burlesque, theatre, literary events, cabaret, vaudeville, art gallery openings, performance art, dance parties... anything interesting, unusual, entertaining, humorous etc. but not illegal and not degrading to the human spirit.

We believe in community that flourishes from generosity of spirit and love and compassion for all people.

Smith’s Alternative is a licenced venue. Persons under 18 must be under the responsible supervision of a parent, guardian or carer.
