#WENewandNovel: This new and lit cafè in Angeles is owned by the city’s most sought-after wedding suppliers

Needless to say, the wedding industry is one of the hardest hit sectors in the world by this pandemic.  Literally, every event is halted as the pandemic raged uncontrolled and is still ravaging the country up to now.  Everyone had to adjust and evolve to the hard times to simply survive the long quarantine period of 2020 until today.  We have seen wedding suppliers venture into businesses that are thriving right now, making sure that their expertise adapt to the new norm, one of which is Art House Cafè and Restaurant in Angeles City.

The restaurant was built and operated by some of Pampanga’s most sought-after wedding suppliers: Voltaire Zalamea and Sigfred Catalan of Events and Concepts by Voltaire Zalamea Wedding Planners, Allen Uy and JP de Jesus of Blooms Event Styling by Allen and JP, Frankie Peralta of Caking Giant and Gibsam Salak and Didz Manalang of Gibsam Photo.

Combining all their existing talents and making a whole new business is such an inspiration. From making delicious food to designing the place, Art House Café and Restaurant- Angeles City Branch became their pleasant distraction from the doldrums of the times. 

The restaurant’s delectable choices in the menu from appetizers to entrees were created by Gibsam and Didz who happens to own the main branch of the brand in Capas, Tarlac as well.   The interiors blossomed under the creative minds of Allen and JP who are licensed interior designers.  The unique look and color scheme fully showcased their love of art and design. Frankie unraveled a line of desserts and pastries that are exclusively available in their Angeles branch, that delights the sweet tooth of any age group. Voltaire’s expertise in strategic marketing and social media content creation completed the business structure.  

Art House’s presence was quickly felt and easily garnered thousands of organic followers and likes in their Facebook page in a matter of days. Now that the restaurant is open, the food has won over their guests and the good reviews have started to pour in.
