We visited for Hogmanay (New Years eve). There was a large group of us circa 20. Food was surprisingly good given how busy the venue was that night. There is a restaurant upstairs, a main bar with lots of small areas that can be reserved with a club downstairs. All professionally run with good service. A good relaxed crowd. Can... More

Me and my partner Went to Arta for dinner a week ago and absolutely loved it. The decor inside was stunning and the food and service was really good. We have relatives visiting next month and will defiantly suggest coming here for dinner and a few cocktails.

Since we arrived after 11, we each had to pay £8.00 entry (+£2.00 cloakroom), which for Glasgow is pretty steep, however from our initial impressions of Arta -... More

Went to the venue for a girls night out, as I entered I was gobsmacked by the decor as well as the ambiance, I truly felt I had stepped off a cold wet street into an amazing club abroad somewhere. The food was lovely as we're the staff who couldn't do enough for us. I was so impressed I'm returning... More

I was at a girly night out in Arta a few weeks ago and it was great fun. It was the first time I had been there and I was very impressed. The atmosphere was amazing and the place looks fantastic, definitely not your average restaurant. The meal was good, and staff very friendly. We had booked a cocktail class... More

Arta is a hidden gem located within Glasgow City Centre. I was amazed at the decor and the music. When I arrived I was totally memorised. The decor was breath taking and the music was fantastic, so dramatic. I was totally astonished, I could not believe that this beautiful bar was in Glasgow. When we arrived I felt that I... More
