Kanteena is a 500m2 repurposed warehouse, in the centre of Lancaster. Here, you will find food, music, beer, entertainment and occasional spontaneous bursts of dancing in this massive new social space.


The Kanteena venue will be bringing a variety of quality street food dishes to Lancaster. We will be scouring the North for its finest traders to supply food for you to enjoy inside, or in our courtyard. Our dish line-up will be changing weekly so we can ensure there is always something for everyone no matter your tastes.


Exceptional independent food vendors will come together so you can choose your favourite world foods and join our mass communal dining space.


No mediocre ales allowed! Unlike your box standard venue, We’re serving up a well tested selection of beers and ales from the variety of new breweries popping up around the country. 

A happy workplace promises a cheery service! And yes, we are hiring… Drop us a line with your CV and some chat about yourself here!


With the capacity to host up to 700 people, Kanteena has no limits to its capabilities, creating a venue that can be transformed into a grand space for all kinds of music performances.

We launched on 11th October with a series of headline gigs for Lancaster Music Festival, with the ambition to bring a programme of top class bands and performers to Lancaster from across the country. Check our events section to see what’s coming up!


A brilliant space like this is asking to be used for markets, pop-up events, art installations, workshops, parties, festivals and any other ‘this just might work’ ideas. 

We will be developing a programme of many different events over the next year so make sure to follow our Facebook page and Instagram to be the first to hear about what’s on. Interested in hosting events not just attending them? We are happy to partner with individuals and organisations interested in using the space for their own events and activities, so If this sounds like you don’t hesitate to Contact us to pitch an idea!


Kanteena can be found in Lancasters’s Canal Quarter, an area that spans from St Leonards Gate to Moor Lane and holds Lancaster treasures like the Music Co-Op, the Dukes Theatre, The Grand Theatre and a glorious stretch of Lancaster’s Canal Path. You might previously remember this big green warehouse as the ‘Classic Drinks’ depot, opposite the Music Co-op. We are an exceptional pub crawl away from either the train or bus station should you be arriving from a little further afield.
