1. A Bristolian cocktail bar in the heart of the city: JAVA
Wedged between Brandon Hill and the City Centre Landing, Java cocktail lounge is part of the city’s rising tide of thoughtful drinking spots. Inside partly resembles a manor house that has gotten lost at the Chelsea Flower Show: oak furniture and crystal chandeliers have been decked out in foliage and clean glass surfaces.
Drinks, of course, figure as the star of the show. In Java’s case, you can expect balanced martinis and refreshing highballs alongside a roster of creative signature cocktails. The Bartenders know what they’re doing – attesting to this is their Salted Caramel Espresso Martini, a grown-up take on a stone-cold classic.
Private hire can be satiated through their 65-capacity cocktail lounge.
