The Milk Thistle – Bristol
From this day forward, we’re going to start every conversation we ever have with, ‘Have you heard of the Milk Thistle?’ It’s too good not to talk about all the time (even if it is a hidden gem). The cocktails, the atmosphere, the cocktails, the décor, the cocktails, the people, the cocktails, the cocktails, THE COCKTAILS! It was love at first sip!

Her Majesty’s Secret Service – Bristol
We were in double-o heaven when we discovered this fab cocktail venue. Shaken, stirred, we’re not a fussy bunch, as long as it tantalises our taste buds and knocks our socks off, we don’t care. And we were walking home barefoot because our socks were blown straight into the Avon. The perfect place to start, finish and spend the whole evening.
