English term or phrase: culture vulture nest
And for visitors to the Nippon capital after a chin-stroking session that highlights the best of the contemporary cohort there is no better bet than The National Museum of Modern Art. A triple-threat in the truest sense, the Chiyoda-ku culture vulture nest showcases local fine art, craft and film across three distinct spaces.

neutral  B D Finch: Vultures don't tend to welcome other vultures in their nests ("where art lovers gather"). Intruder vultures could get their eyes pecked out.

  -> Yeah, maybe true in wild life. But it's an idiom used as a gathering place for art lovers.
