Canvas Bar interior

Who? Canvas Bar

What? Canvas Bar has a sort of late night vibe. Perhaps it’s the dim lighting and pumping music, which surprisingly allows conversations. Perhaps it’s the DJ booth, seemingly ready to go. Or perhaps it’s because it doesn’t really start getting busy until 10pm. Either way, it’s probably not where you’d expect to find a gallery. But there is one. The walls in Canvas are decorated by a rotating gallery from local artists, which, if you like, you could buy. Most people go for the cocktails though, which are divided into seven different categories. Upcycled is a good category to try but it could be fun, as the night goes on, to go off piste and see what else the enthusiastic chaps behind the bar can do.
