Art for Bars

The UK is a country infamous for its diverse and ever expanding range of pubs and bars, but with so much choice, the competition has never been fiercer. Bars are now fighting to create a niche for themselves that is reflected in their aesthetic and keeps customer coming back.

One of the most popular ways bars are finding their own unique style and voice is through modern art. Art for bars helps to create a fun, characterful and relaxing environment that everyone can enjoy. The right art will ensure that your bar isn’t simply a gallery that serves drinks but a modern, forward thinking establishment that is willing to demonstrate its commitment to the democratisation of the art world. Art is for everyone and where better to truly enjoy a great piece of art than in the comforting, relaxing and non-judgemental space that is a bar.

Why should you have art in your bar?

Look Good, Feel Good

Whether people are coming into your bar to enjoy a drink after a hard day at work, looking to unwind on the weekend with friends or are simply out to have a good time, you’ll want to ensure your bar creates the right atmosphere. Recent studies into the psychological effects of art on the human brain connects the viewing of art with increased activity in the brain’s frontal cortex as well as an increase in dopamine, resulting in the individual feeling the same pleasure that is experienced when in love.

Ostensibly, good art makes people feel good and it is this feeling that your customers will want to experience time and time again when visiting your establishment. It is clear that art for bars is so much more than just an aesthetic choice, it is a decision that can impact the mental and emotional state of everyone inside your premises, including your staff.
