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.

Our Yard is a popular suntrap in warmer months – perfect for long summer evenings.

Our events may be on hold for now, but we hope to be able to reintroduce our exciting programme as soon as we are able to so safely.

This is a fantastic venue, the food is outstanding and gorgeous. A huge amount of craft beers available. All the staff are so friendly and very professional.
