Nothing stimulates the mind quite like a room that inspires — and Art Bar has two floors full of inspiration. As a new space for creatives, this specialty store in Serendra features a curated selection of art and design books, tools, and materials that caters to every artistic impulse.
A welcoming sight awaits at the entrance, with a Toby’s Estate bar greeting customers. On the first floor is a well-stocked pen bar, shelves full of art materials from brands such as Caran D’Ache, PanPastel, Sennelier, and kid-favorite Faber Castell.
Up on the second floor is a focus on more serious art practitioners, with specialty paint, brushes, and canvas covering each surface. To maximize the natural light that comes into the room, Art Bar has dedicated a long bar near the tall windows for anyone who’d like to spend an afternoon with a cup of coffee and sketchpad. There is also a bit of open space on this floor for workshops, art exhibits, and gatherings for art enthusiasts.
As the first of several new concepts by the National Book Store store, Art Bar comes in at an excellent time — where creativity has never been more encouraged. National Book Store Managing Director Xandra Ramos-Padilla adds, “Whatever medium your art takes, [Art Bar] has something for you.” —Marga Buenaventura
