You found us! 

Fusion Art Bar & Tapas. This dining space is the result of an artistic passion and a love affair with great food and perfect wines.

In the middle of 2016 the opportunity came up for me to lease the space next door to my gallery, UnderArt, which provided me with the chance to bring together my dream of a seamless interaction between food, wine and art. With the encouragement and support of my daughter Bobbie and husband Johnny, we created Fusion Art Bar & Tapas.

To bring our restaurant to life we worked hard – we renovated, we scoured antique and second hand stores where we purchased character furniture, some of it dating back as far as 1910, which we then stripped, varnished, and reupholstered or painted.

Every item of furniture is quirky, fun, creative and one-of-a-kind. Along the way, we cried, we laughed, we were frustrated and excited together. Slowly but surely we created Fusion Art Bar.

It would have been so much faster, easier and more cost-effective to have everything made by a supplier, however, as an artist, I wanted something unique. I wanted to create a space with a welcoming ambience, perhaps provoke a conversation and bring the tapas dining experience to life in a place that feels like home.

The space is ever-changing as we add new menu items and the artwork that hangs on the walls is sold and replaced with new pieces. Fusion Art Bar supports local artists, and I consider winemakers and chefs to be artisans in their own right. In fact food, wine, and art is what I consider to be the perfect threesome.
