For Bristolians, Friday's are made for after-work drinks on King Street.

This Friday is the final before we all clear off for Christmas, and cobbled King Street is the only place to be. Along with the usual "cheers to the weekend" over craft beer, the King Street Night Market returns with a range of independent street food traders to take your fill of. Make an evening of it, invite your colleagues, besties and four-legged friends, and toast to a great year of independent eating in Bristol. 

What to drink 

Head to the best of King Street's famous Beermuda Triangle. Try Small Bar for third-pints of the strong stuff, the Volley for fine wine and roaring fires, and Beer Emporium to get a fix of unfamiliar ales from small breweries.
