Colette曾是牛奶公司的本地員工宿舍。當時一般兩層高的建築物,通常都是下層作店鋪或倉庫,上層住人。在這宿舍住的員工,包括香港原居民,以及從內地輸入的勞工。英治時期,政府曾限制本地人在中環居住,牛奶公司為他們的員工提供居所,值得嘉許。

這裏曾經是藝術家工作室、藝穗會辦公室,後來化身為攝影廊,現在是藝術酒吧。與一般酒吧不同,這裡的牆壁長期展示不同形式和風格的攝影作品和畫作,故稱為藝術酒吧。Colette’s以本地演員、藝術家及創業家顧嘉玲小姐命名。顧氏亦是藝穗會的義工及好友。

 

現在,這裏不僅是酒吧,亦提供素食自助午餐和亞洲特色小食等等,並將藝術融入在內,為會員提供空間在欣賞節目後作分享和交流。

Colette was a dormitory for local workers of Old Dairy Farm Depot. At that time, it was common for a two-storey building to have shops or storerooms on the lower floor and a residence on the upper floor. Some of the Dairy Farm Company’s workers, including local Hong Kongers and imported workers from Mainland China, lived in this dormitory. Under British rule, there were restrictions on local people living in Central, so we think it’s admirable that the company provided accommodation for its local workers.

Colette used to be the Fringe Club’s office. Then it became a photo gallery and finally the artbar. Unlike in a normal bar, artworks and photos are exhibited on the walls, so we’ve called the venue an artbar. It was named after Colette Koo, a local actress, artist, performer and entrepreneur. She was also a volunteer and a good friend of the Fringe Club. 

 

Now, Colette is more than just a bar serving drinks – it also serves a vegetarian lunch buffet and Asian-style snacks. It integrates art into the bar, and provides a comfortable space where members can exchange ideas after shows.
