Bath isn’t just about historical charm, it’s also home to a great night out. Whatever your cocktail vibe, Bath has something to suit everyone, all served in a suitably stylish setting.

Here’s our insider’s guide to the top cocktail bars in Bath:

Coppa Club – The Bath Townhouse

At the bottom of the main high street in Bath, within The Bath Townhouse, Coppa Club is a great spot anytime during the day or well into the evening. Their cocktail menu has all the classics and their large restaurant serves great food too. Don’t miss their signature “Bathing Beauty,” a refreshing gin cocktail with cucumber and elderflower, or the “Honeycomb Old Fashioned,” a twist on the classic with a touch of sweetness.

The Walcot

The Walcot is an intimate bar, and its dimly lit atmosphere is a great spot for a pre or post dinner drink. Their menu, which also has a great selection of wines, features a mix of classics and house creations, with a focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients. Be sure to try their “Smoked Negroni,” infused with the subtle aroma of wood smoke, or the “Spiced Pear Martini,” a delightful blend of pear and warm spices.

The Dark Horse

This award-winning bar has garnered a reputation for its cocktails. The Dark Horse takes a unique approach to mixology, often using unexpected ingredients and techniques to create truly unique concoctions. Their menu changes seasonally, ensuring a fresh and exciting experience each visit. If you’re feeling adventurous, try the “Earl Grey Marmalade Martini,” or the “Smoked Pineapple Old Fashioned,” a smoky take on the classic.

Hidden behind an unassuming door, The Other Room is another great spot to try. This intimate bar boasts an eclectic décor and a friendly atmosphere, perfect for a relaxed evening with friends. Their ever-evolving menu features a mix of playful and sophisticated cocktails, many with unique flavour combinations. Indulge in the “Espresso Martini Martini,” a double dose of espresso-infused goodness, or the “Cucumber & Elderflower Collins,” a refreshing and light summer cocktail.
