bar humbug is available to hire 365 days a year - for free!
We also do fantastic buffets which are both tasty and excellent value and we absolutely love hosting parties with a DJ or band to get everyone bouncing.
Conveniently split into two rooms, imaginatively known as ... er … The Front and, yes you’ve guessed it, The Back. This enables us to cater for all party sizes, up to a maximum of about 150.
The Back is ideal for parties up to about 70 but, when the main bar is incorporated, you can easily double this number.
These comprise of a two hour cocktail making class with a specially trained bartender taking the role as teacher. ‘Students’ are talked through the tools of the bartender, free-pouring skills, history of cocktails, how to be an efficient bartender and detailed information on spirits, not forgetting the opportunity to make (and drink!) your own creations of new and classic cocktails.
bar humbug has been the relaxed and friendly heart of Bristol’s Whiteladies Road for the last 19 years, so we must be doing something right!
The ethos is to keep things low-key, informal and welcoming, which is fundamentally down to our employees. Down to the last man and women, they all like working here and frankly, if we may say so, it shows.
The wines are well-sourced, there is an interesting and comprehensive array of spirits and the cocktails are superbly and elegantly presented. Alternatively, just sit and enjoy a cold beer - either way, we’re happy, but more importantly, we want to ensure you are too.
