Art Bar at Abbey Hotel Bath

Living in Bristol, I often spend my time visiting Bath and exploring the amazing heritage and culture that the city has to offer. With that in mind, I was delighted to hear that there was a newly refurbished addition to the city and I couldn’t wait to find out more.

The Art Bar in the Abbey Hotel has recently been renovated and completely transformed into a venue which showcases some incredible pieces of art, whilst allowing people to mingle and socialise in a great atmosphere.

The decor in the Art Bar is absolutely amazing. The textures and colours work wonderfully together to help create a fresh and contemporary vibe.

It was wonderful to be able to visit the first Redefined exhibit, curated by Bath artist Emma Taylor. The exhibit uses the space within the Art Bar to showcase some fabulous pieces by local artists such as James Nunn, Emma Trussler, Jean Farrell, Rob Highton and Emma Taylor herself.

One thing that I really love about the Art Bar, is the fact that the Art showcased within the bar will be forever rotating. This allows local artists to have a space in which they can show the public some of their amazing work.

The artwork is not just presented on the walls of the Art Bar, there are also sketch books placed throughout the bar, allowing customers to flick through some of the artists work and get a real feel for their inspiration and talent.

Along with the incredible decor and theme, the Art Bar serves some incredible cocktails. My favourite being their signature cocktail, Artistic License. This Gin based cocktail works wonderfully with the quirky and colourful atmosphere.

I was invited along to this evening as part of a gifted campaign, but all opinions and views are my own.

This week I was lucky enough to be invited to a fabulous event in connection with Jewel Street. The event was in order to celebrate the brand and introduce their SS18 Look Book.

Jewel Street is a brand that supports independent jewellery designers by giving them an online platform to promote their hand crafted and quality pieces. Jewellery from Jewel Street has been spotted on several celebs, with the likes of Cardi B, Khloe Kardashian and Rihanna to name a few.

The event was hosted by the fabulous Karina Marriott who made us all feel incredibly welcome. She did a fantastic job at introducing us to the brand and the different designers they work with.

It was great to hear about a brand who create unique pieces of jewellery that can be personalised and created to your choice. 

I really love seeing somebody be passionate about a brand, as it allows you to put your trust and faith in them. Karina did a brilliant job with this and I couldn’t have imagined a better host for the evening.

The venue for the event was The Florist Bristol. This worked well as the beautiful jewellery matched perfectly with the decor. Throughout the evening we were also given the chance to try out the delicious cocktails supplied by The Florist. 

I love being able to watch their cocktails be created. The taste and presentation of the drinks at The Florist is always very fitting with the floral theme.
