Cafe Bar

Located on Southville’s bustling North Street, our Cafe Bar is a hub for great food, drink, music and art. Converted from an historic factory, once at the heart of Bristol’s industrial past, our bright, contemporary and welcoming space is a unique spot to eat and relax with family and friends.

Families and Children

The Cafe Bar is a great place for families to be together and the kitchen offers a range of junk-free children’s options that they will love. Children are welcome in the Cafe Bar (with the exception of the stage area) until 9pm. High chairs and baby changing facilities are available.



The Cafe Bar is fully wheelchair accessible from the front and rear of the building. Space is reserved for disabled customers in Tobacco Factory’s car park.
