The Courtauld Gallery will open its doors for late-night access until 21.30, giving visitors the chance to enjoy an evening of world-class art, cocktails, music, and performances surrounded by The Courtauld’s collection of masterpieces at Somerset House.

The first Courtauld Lates on Friday 26 May 2023 is a last chance to experience our five-star exhibition of new and recent works by Peter Doig before it closes on 29 May 2023.

Unwind after work and explore masterpieces from The Courtauld’s world-renowned art collection, such as Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear and Manet’s A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. Other highlights include our 20th Century British Art display, the Bloomsbury Room and the magnificent Blavatnik Fine Rooms.

A pop-up bar serving ‘Courtauld Cocktails’ will be open in the terrace courtyard on the lower ground floor, while the Art Café will be open for refreshments until late. Plus a live DJ set in the Gallery Entrance Hall throughout the evening.
