Welcome to Bar des Arts!
Opened by Richard Gouget and Sara Burks in 2010, Bar des Arts is a meeting space by day and a sophisticated champagne and cocktail bar at night. Located in central Guildford opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, we are an oasis of calm for meetings, workshops and other events 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 champagne, 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 a great environment for meetings in our upstairs meeting room and the day includes freshly baked pastries, delicious light lunches and home made cakes. In the evenings we have meat and cheese platters, baked camembert and apperitivo to accompany your cocktails and wine.
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.
