Bar Humbug - Yes it has one of the greatest names ever, but Bar Humbug also has a great atmosphere, fantastically friendly staff and their Barbados iced tea cocktail is worth the trip for alone.
Hyde & Co - Shhh, we'll have to whisper. This fantastic speakeasy prohibition joint is undoubtedly Bristol's best kept secret. At Hyde & Co the only thing you can expect is the unexpected.
The Canteen - The perfect fusion of laid back (often live) music, wonderful drinks and fantastic food. The Canteen is laid back and relaxed in everything except its focus on flavour and service.
Glassboat - Not only one of the city's best locations but also a fantastic menu and great prices. The huge glass windows look out over the river giving you a fantastic setting to enjoy wonderful service and top notch food.
