Why we love it

Slick and stylish, The Urban Standard plays a smooth game. Taking inspiration from the industrial-chic feel of New York's Lower East Side, this drinking den is a haven of hedonism.

The dim lighting and subdued decor allows the striking artwork - much of it by Bristol-based artists - to shine. Despite its small size and galley layout, it has a couple of corner tables for cuddling up in over a couple of cocktails. Social folks can hop upon a high-top stool and appreciate a bar jam-packed with quality spirits, plus a fine selection of craft beer on tap. The cocktails are pretty potent, made with fresh and funky ingredients, and a great way to kick-start a night out.

The menu moves away from the well-worn burger and chips combos, and while this favoured combo can be relished, don't be quick to overlook the Sharing Plates (the "All of the Meat" platter is a board heaving with beautifully-cooked meats). There's also a range of lip-smacking Small Plates - such as Fried Whitebait, Vietnamese Prawns and Muhammara.
