Bristol is the second city for Black Rock because it's "gurt lush" and because there's no other city in the UK that embraces new things like Bristol does. Located in an old barristers chambers on Marsh Street, right in the heart of the Old City, not far from the popular drinking holes of King Street, lies a dedicated whisky bar.
At centrepiece of the bar stands a 6 ton, 220 year old oak tree, quietly maturing a cocktail in its belly. It needs seeing to be believed. Wall art is courtesy of Bristol local, Ryan Gajda, who has infused whisky drinking culture in to original designs inspired by traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e wood block prints.
Over 400 whiskies from all over the world are stocked in this plush bar. The knowledgable staff are on hand to help you figure out the best pick for you, so no need to be overwhelmed. Expect a selection of cocktails that are either (short and strong) or highballs (long and light). All of them based on great tasting whiskies from around the world.
There’s also a range of craft beers - six draughts that showcase a changing range of local products and global favourites.
