Overview

Bath's premier cocktail bar serving the best cocktails in town since 2004. Big city style in an intimate, friendly environment. Sweeping leather booths and subtle lighting attract an intimate and vibrant crowd. And our hidden gem, the Perrier-Jouet Champagne terrace is a city centre oasis thats open till 1am and heated for the winter.

We came here on a busy Saturday night. We spent all of our time in the garden area which is covered in giant umbrellas, heat lamps and fairy lights. It's such a pretty setting. Bar service was slow because it was so busy. Reasonably priced...More
