The Abbey Hotel in Bath today welcomes a new doorman to the hotel in feathery form.  Standing in front of the iconic hotel, its sponsored Minerva Owl will not only welcome people to their sunny terrace, restaurant and Art Bar but serve up free cocktail tasters during a weekly ‘Happy Owl’.

Inspired by the hotel’s colourful Art Bar and vibrant cocktail list, ARTIS, decorated by local artist Emma Taylor, will be perched on North Parade, outside the hotel for the duration of the Minerva’s Owl public art event (25th June – 10th September 2018).

This feathery resident has also inspired a limited edition ARTIS cocktail, which will also be available to try as a free taster every Friday between 3pm-4pm. The cocktail, designed by head bartender Martin Savage uses owl themed Tawney Port, Cherry Heering, Punt E Mes Vermouth, House Walnut Bitters, Lemon Juice and Demerara Sugar, complete with a feather-inspired garnish.

With its own ‘ARTIS in residence’, the ArtBar team will also open the feathery fun up to all visitors of the Minerva’s Owls trail, launching a competition to find the best owl inspired cocktails and mocktails.

Josh Watts, General Manager of the Abbey Hotel says, “We’re excited to be part of the Minerva’s Owls of Bath and hope people can enjoy a flavour of our hotel through the free cocktail tasters that ARTIS will serve up to thirsty commuters, tourists and Bath residents this summer. If that’s not enough to whet your appetite, then our programme of owl themed events will hopefully tickle everyone’s fancy”.

The aptly named ArtBar has long been known for the quirky and ever-changing art work on its walls, all created by local artists and inspired by Bath and the beauty of the Abbey Hotel’s stunning location.
