Everything at The Flat represents the owners’ unique taste - and they try to stay true to themselves at all times. In addition to art, they are ardent music lovers and combine both mediums whenever possible. This is best represented at their "Friday Frenzy" events held throughout the summer where some of Menorca’s most colourful and creative characters, artists and musicians come together for a lively night of art, music and wine.

The Gallery also has a wide variety of NFTs available on their online store where buyers have the opportunity to own digital copies of the art they have purchased from the Gallery.
