Welcome to Bar des Arts!
Opened by Richard Gouget and Sara Burks in 2010, Bar des Arts is a cafe by day and a sophisticated cocktail and wine bar at night. Located in central Guildford opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, we are an oasis of calm during the day and lively, enchanting and entertaining at night. We chose the name Bar des Arts as our philosophy is to meld the arts with the bar to offer our customers a chic environment where they can relax, drink great coffee, wine and cocktails whilst being entertained by poetry, dance, literary readings, live music, comedy and even magic.
All our cocktails are freshly made by our trained mixologists who are passionate about what they do, accompanied by live music, dance and other creative events. We also have a continually changing selection of art on the walls from a wide variety of very talented local artists.
During the day we offer freshly baked pastries, delicious light lunches and frequently have on offer special cakes. In the evenings we have platters and apperitivos to accompany your cocktails and wine.
The upstairs meeting room provides a perfect venue for hosting business meetings.
If you would like to be on our mailing list and be the first to hear about events and special offers, please either call or email us.
We look forward to welcoming you to Bar des Arts.
