The Vault Bar - The Vault Arts Centre

Vault graphicThe Vault Bar


The Vault Arts Centre bar provides a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments for those attending performance events, private hire events or visiting the music shop.

With a focus on supporting produce from Dumfries & Galloway, and more generally from across Scotland, you'll get a real Galloway, Scottish, experience during your visit.

Draught beers from the fantastic Five Kingdoms Brewery at nearby Isle of Whithorn, bottled beers from Wigtown Brewery plus the superb Hills & Harbour, Galloway Gin and 24/7 vodka from just up the road in Newton Stewart from the popular Crafty Distillery;  a 'must visit' when in Newton Stewart.

There's the fabulous Sky Garden gin from Dark Art Distillery in nearby Kirkcudbright, gins and vodkas from Solway Spirits in Annan and bottled beers from Borderlands Brewery in Langholm.  Not forgetting the outstanding, delicious, Bladnoch single malt whiskys from Bladnoch Distillery, another fantastic place to visit when in the region.

There's also WEST 4 on draught, which is German lager brewed in Glasgow by WEST Brewery and is a very popular choice in the bar.

If rum is your tipple, then make sure you try the outstanding white, spiced and aged rums which are distilled and bottled in Dalton, near Lockerbie, by the outstanding Ninefold Distillery.

If none of that is to your taste, don't worry…we have all the usual drinks you'd expect from a good bar, a fantastic selection of white, red, rose and sparkling wines, spirits and soft drinks.
