Fancy a tipple?
Looking for somewhere to indulge in a sociable drink with colleagues, to grab a glass of wine with friends or for great night out on the tiles? Here are some suggestions we've put together. Our modern hotel is handily located a short 10 minute walk from Bath city centre, where you'll find plenty of bars, clubs and pubs to choose from.
3 John Street
Tucked away, this historic pub is well worth seeking out. 'The Sally' is actually just off Queen Square in the heart of the city, a traditional pub that marries well with the Georgian surroundings. Step inside and you'll find cosy pub complete with a varied mix of friendly patrons. Known for the range of bespoke real ales, in particular the Rare Hare, The Salamander also offers a good menu of tasty grub to accompany your drinks.
For a laid back atmosphere, great ales and even a game of monopoly, The Sally will make you happy you sought it out.
Grappa Wine Bar
3 Lansdown Road
Grappa is an unassuming, elegant bar to enjoy some of Bath's finest continental cocktails. Don't be put off by the throat-searing spirit's reputation. Although it takes centre stage there are a variety of mix's to experiment with, from rare aged to the heavy-weight 70% proof powerhouses. Hemingway would have be very much at home here in the presence of his favourite drop but if it doesn't do anything for you, don't despair, the wine and cocktail list are both extensive.
Grappa's great vibe and creative cocktails will have you feeling like one of the regulars in no time.
14 George Street
The venue in Bath for those who appreciate live music, Moles is an intimate venue with a proper electric atmosphere. Set in the basement of a beautiful Georgian house sets here can get sweaty but then that's all part of the fun. Let loose and enjoy the music alongside others who are just there to have fun. After a few hours of great gigs, you'll be jumping, dancing and singing with strangers like they were your best friends. No wonder bands like Portishead, The Smiths and The Cure as well as big-time dj's Annie Mac, Simian Mobile Disco and Erol Alkan have played Moles in the past.
For a brilliant social night out in Bath, Moles is the word.
The Common Room
2 Saville Row
The Common Room is a flamboyant, fun club in which to party under the disco ball. Open till 2am, this stylish, sexy multi-bar venue is covered in quirky, edgy touches to complement the chilled-out atmosphere. When the night falls, Common Room djs will play all the funky, soulful and energetic tracks to get you moving. Get there before 11pm to ensure you make it in, the friendly feel, reasonable drink prices and smallish dance floor do mean this cool, contemporary club tends to fill fast.
Good music amongst great friends, boogie down to The Common Room.
If you want to stay out and enjoy the sights and sounds of Bath city centre, the Bizarre Bath Comedy Walk makes for a really good evening. Completely devoid of any historical insight, it's a brilliantly irrelevant, ridiculous tour.
During March to October, the 90 minute walking tour is full of stories to make you see Bath in a different light. Beginning at 8pm from Huntsman Inn (1 Terrace Walk, North Parade BA1 1LY), it's a leisurely walk around Bath's beautiful limestone structures but don't be surprised by the tour's lack of insight into the Georgian architecture.
What Bizarre Bath does extremely well is provide an evening of magic tricks, practical jokes and lots of laughs!
"The Gentleman hosting this walk is very knowledgeable, funny, entertaining and reacts great with his audience. I was picked to interact on this lovely tour of Bath which was great and a lot of fun! Although, it's certainly a comedy tour and not by any means a historical tour of Bath. My tips would be to wear some comfy shoes and perhaps a warm jacket for the colder nights in March, April and May."
"I would definitely recommend taking this walk while in Bath"
- Jai Murphy-Hennessey, Nights Guest Service Manager
Little Theatre Cinema
1-2 St. Michaels Place
Take in a film at 'The Little' and step back in time. A world away from the giant, blockbuster multi-plexes, this quaint, little, art-house cinema is just the place to enjoy a 'grown-up evening' at the movies.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Bath, The Little Theatre Cinema is on a quiet street in the city centre. It's not for everyone but you really do get a 'vintage feel' in this cinema. It's the place to go for some brilliant, old classics that you'd love to see on the big screen again. Seating is incredibly comfy, especially the sofas on the balcony level. To top it off the café also sells a great selection of tasty hot food, beer and wine.
If you want to appreciate the occasion of going to the movies rather than having it as just something to do in the evening, The Little Theatre Cinema in Bath is definitely recommended.
