Theatre Bar

    “We hired the Theatre Bar for my parents’ surprise Ruby Wedding Anniversary. Rusti and Katy were exceptionally helpful in planning for the event, and were very flexible and accommodating with all our requests. On the night itself the bar staff were brilliant. They helped us set up and clear up and were so lovely to have around for the party. Really couldn’t recommend it more highly. Thank you!” Becci Grant

    For availability and rates, to discuss your individual requirements or to arrange a visit of the space, please email or call 0117 902 0345.


    We work with a number of independent catering organisations to source the perfect menu for your hire. From sandwiches to buffets, we can send you sample menus to find the perfect hire food for your event.


    Can we hire the space in the evening or at night?

    Yes, but due to our this space being our theatre bar and audience members coming in for pre-theatre and interval drinks, bookings will need to avoid show nights or clashes with show times.

    Will the event be staffed?

    Yes, we have fully trained front of house and bar staff who will cater to your needs and help your event to run smoothly.
