The art in “ART BAR”

ART BAR will make art a major element of the new venue by working with local artists and designers who will create exclusive pieces for the new venue, display their works and also showcase their craft, ‘live’.

This Friday, witness art created ‘live’ by local graf artist ClogTwo, amidst a backdrop of exclusive works made by Speak Cryptic, Kristal Melson, Sharul Amir and Eric Foenander.

ART BAR will also double up as a gallery so you can expect more art and creative expressions coming your way.
