Bristol Nightlife


  Bristol and gin are a winning combo at the moment, with micro-distilleries popping up all over the city. So it was only a matter of time before our first dedicated gin bar arrived in town. Dutch in Old Market has over 400 gins to get your tastebuds around, either in a classic gin and tonic or an intriguing new cocktail. We recommend starting somewhere in the middle [en-dash] the spiced G&T is the perfect winter warmer.

The Old Butcher's
Innovative brewery Wiper & True and The Old Bookshop come together in a new North Street bar that has already taken the city by storm, judging by the crowds spilling out onto the pavement most evenings. Showcasing the best Wiper & True beers, as well as limited edition releases and experimental brews, The Old Butcher's is a small but perfectly formed haven for beer lovers looking to try something new. Get there early to get a seat and grab a drink in one of their already-Insta-famous Craftmaster bowls.
