We’re a new cocktail and live music bar called Kokomo opening in Guildford in early December (2015) complete with resident mixologists and party food provided by a top London chef. Our upmarket venue looks set to launch on Friday, December 4 at the former Bar des Arts site opposite the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Millbrook.
We’ve refurbished and updated the premises significantly, and aim to have the bar completed for early December, creating something unique to Guildford with a real ‘London feel’. We are planning a soft launch initially, which will be predominantly for friends and family, and will then have our grand launch on December 4, in time for the run into Christmas and the winter party season.
As a cocktail and live music venue, we will be open daily from 5pm until 2am, excluding Sundays, which is from 5pm until midnight.
Food is also on our menu including charcuterie and cheese platters. For Christmas we are organising hot food menus for parties on request via an excellent chef called Aneke Spacie, formerly at The Ivy in London
Pop by and you can hear some fantastic acoustic bands from Guildford and surrounding areas and on Sundays we will have Jazz bands playing from 5pm.
Aaron Hibbert, our General Manager, and his expert mixologist team have devised a whole host of impressive cocktails including a ‘Porn Star Martini’ – perfect for James Bond fans, ‘Jacks Jam’ and the ‘Kokomo Spritz’ for guests to try from the launch night onwards.
We aim to become one of Guildford’s most sophisticated night spots, creating a venue where people can see a range of live music while also enjoying champagne and cocktails.
What to do next? Simply book-a-booth or table for your own celebrations or just come along and join in the party!
