Go from a Spanish taverna to Caesar's palace in one fell swoop with this Mediterranean themed bar, restaurant and venue in the heart of Merchant City. Hacienda style decor with white wash walls, wooden beams, archways and courtyards and a vast spread of marble statues and tall church candles.

As everything from a wedding venue to a restaurant with its very own Romeo and Juliet balcony, this place oozes romance, making it a great spot for first dates or proposals. Live music downstairs in Canvas Club attracts a livelier bunch, with a 30-something party crowd drawn in by live cover bands, salsa nights, and DJs spinning a mix of classic and contemporary tunes. The bars upstairs pull heaps of after workers with their extensive list of cocktails and sangrias while Saturday's at 11pm sees Arta put on their surprise Spanish show. Food is a Med mix of tapas and a la carte, with special platters for after work, group bookings and private parties.

Arta is a really gorgeous venue and probably the most romantic bar setting in the entire city. Drinks are good but a bit expensive, although with the decor you can understand why.

This place is awesome and I can visit over and over again. it's a pity that I can't hold my baby shower there but would have loved to because of age restrictions.

A little quieter than the places I normally go, haha, but my boyf brought me here for our anniversary last month and it was really special, lovely food and the place is just really different, doesn't really feel like you're in Glasgow!
