Art Bar in Serendra is the newest haven for painters and crafters

It has a Toby's Estate branch, too!


( Being an artist—in whatever form—is never easy. Aside from having to sign up for classes and workshops and focusing all your creative energy on your work-in-progress, you still have to think about the most effective way to express what's on your mind. You're also always on the lookout for the best medium and art supplies, especially when your form is visual arts. It doesn't help (at all) that huge canvasses and top-of-the-line acrylic paint are often only available abroad.





Enter Art Bar, the first of several specialty stores by National Book Store. It houses art supplies from imported brands and exclusive collections, such as Pébéo, Sennelier, Winsor & Newton, Caran d’Ache, and others. With this extensive selection, spending too much for shipment and online purchasing can be avoided.





Crafters will also have a great time browsing through the variety of washi tapes, calligraphy pens and ink, and stickers. They even have a stand of Touch Twin Markers by Shin Han Art Materials. You'd be surprised at how many shades of yellow they came up with just for those highlighters.





The new store is also looking into holding workshops, book signings, and art exhibits in the future, in hopes of becoming a go-to place for the Filipino art community. These exciting events are to be complemented by refreshments and treats from Toby's Estate, found on the first floor.




“Art Bar has everything you need to exercise your creativity and elevate your artistry," National Book Store Managing Director Xandra Ramos-Padilla shared. "Whatever medium your art takes, we have something for you."


Art Bar is at 1/F Serendra Piazza, McKinley Parkway, Fort Bonifacio, Bonifacio Global City.
