Why we love it

A quintessential part of the drop-dead-gorgeous St Nick's market, The Rummer is one of Bristol's premier cocktail spots and an all-round-terrific indie highlight in a city-centre hotspot. Their spot-on classic drinks, and insta worthy cocktails are held in the highest of esteem by critics, bloggers and in-the-know locals alike.

Boasting over 400 premium spirits from all corners of the globe and a bar team with serious mixologist pedigree, this historic building (legend has it that an inn has stood here since the 1200s) is one that lives long in the memory.

Head below-ground and things get even more interesting because this is the verging-on-clandestine hidey-hole, distillery and bottling operation of Bristol Dry Gin - the first venture by Bristol Spirits Collective, a small band of professionals with a passion for distilling and a love of fine spirits. The collective was born in 2016, with the aim of combining the skills found within the bar and restaurant industry, into a group that could produce some of the finest spirits in the world. They enjoy the process of creation (never releasing a product that has not been tested extensively on themselves) and bring gin to any and every place they are invited. Our kind of people.

Great expresso martinis, aperok spritz and gin! Great service too


Great atmosphere and good service. Drinks are made really well. I like the table service with the drinks.


A lovely bar in a great central location, but tucked away and peaceful. Friendly service and lots of choice.


Always excellent cocktails in a relaxed environment


Great locally made gin and vodka in some really nice cocktails.


The venue itself is nicest at night when it feels really cosy. Drinks are stunning but expect to pay for the quality!
