If you are noticing a trend of combining bar with art, books, crafts, or dog parks, you are right. The latest to join the movement of combining wine and cocktails with art is DADA Art Bar, a gallery, bar and coffee shop, that will host its grand opening tonight.
Located at 2470 Broadway, DADA is the younger sister of Amerigo Delicatus, a restaurant owned by Iain Chisholm right around the corner.
Here's how DADA describes itself on its Facebook page.
DADA Art Bar is committed to the advancement of artistic expression within the Denver community as a vital cultural force. It is our goal to support and develop the capacity of local, national, and international artists to reach Denver's public with a platform for exposure as well as commerce. DADA Art Bar will be a space for the Denver community to experience and engage with the performing, literary, media, and visual arts. Our RiNo location will continuously house arts projects, including concerts, performances, public art, exhibitions, screenings, festivals, workshops, readings and more. The first Friday of each month will mark a new show and an exciting opportunity for artists to share and possibly profit from their work - regardless of professional artistic experience. DADA's approach to gallerism will be completely democratic. It will serve culture and history at large, as opposed to the exclusivity of the traditional gallery market. So that there is a more equitable and diverse range of artists and artworks represented, we will showcase a full spectrum of backgrounds and identities. All are welcome to become involved - whether by presenting, performing, experiencing, or purchasing works. DADA Art Bar is not only a place to participate in artistic inquiry and creation, but also a place to interact with artists and art enthusiasts, partake in dialogue and discussion about the arts, and enjoy a drink in the beautiful gallery space.
