The Distillery

The Distillery is a vibrant community of artists, artisans, and small businesses located in a beautiful mid 19th century converted rum distillery building. For more than twenty years The Distillery has been a hub of creativity and the arts in the city of Boston, housing many nationally and internationally renowned artists and artisans. Located in historic South Boston, The Distillery houses two galleries as well as approximately 140 tenants in its studios and studio apartments. Come meet the artists and personnel and experience The Distillery firsthand at our Open Studios events each Spring & Fall.

In addition to being one of the largest and most dynamic arts communities in the city, The Distillery is also committed to an environmentally sustainable approach to real estate development. The building management is dedicated to the research and implementation of green technology in both The Distillery building and future building projects.
