Introducing: Art Bar
Art Bar is the newest specialty store made by possible by National Book Store, strategically situated in Serendra Piazza, McKinley Parkway, Fort Bonifacio, BGC. It’s a concept art store with two floors of hard-to-find art materials, even those that aren’t generally found in any other art shop in the Philippines. It’s definitely a go-to for artists and crafters alike.
Being a concept store, it offers…
The first floor contains basic art and craft materials, of which includes scrapbooking materials, a variety of colored pencil illustration mediums differing from brands and types, and even calligraphy tools. If you’re not familiar with the brand or the type, Art Bar has a testing table for their products to help ensure you choose the right tool.
Moving up to second floor, you’ll find top-of-the-line art supplies for professional artists. There are paints, brushes, canvases and papers in various brands, types, sizes and colors. Some of which are often those that pro artists generally have difficulty finding. More than that, the second floor also includes a workshop area (yes, you read that right!) This is specifically designed for hosting Art Bar’s events. It can also be rented as a venue for other events such as seminars, launches, or talks.
If you need a moment to sit down to rest or think over what you need, the Art Bar also has a nook cafe in partnership with Toby’s Estate located in the first floor.
