Overseeing all aspects of the restaurant, Chef Art is the soul of Art and Soul. “I grew up in a small southern town and my cuisine is certainly a reflection of my upbringing. I look forward to offering our guests a little bit of our heart and soul in all of our dishes,” said Chef Art.
New Year's Eve
Join us for a 3–course New Year's Eve dinner and let us entertain you à la "Mad Men." Executive Chef Wes Morton has created a menu inspired by the 1960s era food culture. While you dine on these nostalgically tasty dishes enjoy a live jazz band and join us for the requisite midnight champagne toast. Accoutrements of classic cocktails, beer and wine may be expertly paired with each course.
The night kicks off with the first seating running from 5:30-7:00 p.m. ($75) The second seating begins at 7:00 p.m. ($85) Additional beverages, tax and gratuity are charged accordingly. ArtBar will stay open until 2am and serve pre-selected champagne, sparkling wine, traditional cocktails, as well as the New Year's Eve menu (until mightnight). All items can be ordered individually at the bar.
Pssst…interested more in a staycation? Take an elevator ride home after dinner and stay with us at The Liaison Capitol Hill, an Affinia Hotel. Sleep in on New Year’s Day and take advantage of a late check out. Just visit affinia.com/nye13.
