Opposite one of the area's leading theatres, the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Bar Des Arts is one of the most sophisticated cocktail bars, wine bars and bistro and bars in Guildford.
By day, Bar Des Arts is a cafe - perfect for meeting friends, family or colleagues for a coffee and light meal.
By night, it becomes a sophisticated wine and cocktail bar, popular with patrons of the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, who visit Bar Des Arts before or after a show.
As one satisfied customer explains:
"I'm not a regular to Guildford in the evenings... selected the Bar Des Arts to start our evening off and was really impressed. Great choice of drinks and really good atmosphere, my wife and friends all enjoyed. We would certainly recommend and shall be returning!"
In the day...
...Bar Des Arts is a fantastic location in which to break up a day's shopping, meeting friends, family or colleagues or simply while away an hour in relaxed surroundings.
For breakfast, why not partake in a freshly baked pastry, toast and preserves, all served with your choice of a speciality tea, coffee or fresh juice?
Alternatively, if you visit Bar Des Arts between 11:30am and 5pm, a fantastic selection of baguettes, salads, quiches and sharing platters are available.
In the evening...
...Bar Des Arts transforms into a stylish cocktail and wine bar, and due to its location opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, it is the ideal venue for a pre-theatre aperitif or to enjoy a bottle of fine wine after the performance.
Bar Des Arts serves a wide selection of cocktails, white, red, rosé and sparkling wine and Champagne. Choose from:
- Monte Verde Sauvignon Blanc
- Gavi di Gavi la Toledana Villa Lanata
- Fleurie Châteaude Fleurie
- Prosecco Extra Dry
- Laurent Perrier Rose

Alongside your chosen wine or cocktails, your party could indulge in a sharing platter, freshly prepared using the finest Continental meats and cheeses, and served with warm, crusty bread.
Bar Des Arts also has a range of vegetarian options available; please ask the staff for further details when ordering.
As well as being a popular destination for both pre and post-theatre drinks, Bar Des Arts also organises regular themed nights, featuring quality live music, drinks and food.
A recent event was the bar's Spanish Night, which boasted live music from 'Lone Pepper Duo', tapas and sangria, and was a fantastic way to savour the sizzling Spanish culture without stepping foot out of Guildford.
