Why a Bristol Birthday?

What if I told you Bristol is where the first chocolate bar was born and where bungee jumping began? Yes, the Clifton Suspension Bridge as used for the very first jump and stands strong today to climb over as well as dive off. Do you need to know anything else? Well, of course there's booze too, but that’s too normal.

Why not challenge your friends to Goofy Games in the West Country, or Quad biking followed ? Okay, whilst those are all fantastic options for your group during your Bristol birthday party weekend, we have been doing this for far too long to think that beer, and plenty of it, is not what this weekend in Bristol is really about. In the heart of the city centre, you will find a huge range of pubs and clubs, from local boozers to quirky bars between King Street to Park Street.

Whilst our facts of Bristol's history may or may not have caught your attention, the city has a lot to offer no matter your interests! Bristol was the birth place of Banksy and JK Rowling meaning inspiration is all around you in this vibrant city!

A street quite unlike any other, King Street is ideal for sipping craft beers in the sunshine, for the street is lined with pubs that overspill onto benches that decorate the road. A great atmosphere all year round, you will find locals, tourists and party groups frequenting this district of Bristol.

Whilst you are here, don't forget to visit the iconic Kongs of King Street where you will get to enjoy craft beer whilst competing with friends over retro arcade games and consoles!

Park Street

Be warned, this steep hill may be a challenge after a few drinks but it will definitely be worth the wander as you will find amazing watering holes and upmarket bars that you will want to visit!

St Nicholas Street

For cool and quirky independent bars and restaurants, St Nicholas Street is the one for you! Just a short walk away from King Street, it is the perfect place to head after you have spent the afternoon sipping beer in the sun, for an evening of craft beer and incredible cocktails!

Harbourside & Millennium Square

For somewhere to take your group from day to night, Bristol's Harbourside will be where you find yourselves drifting to the most. Not only do you have an amazing backdrop to your party, but a hub of venues and spots to enjoy the city.

Gloucester Road

For more of a unique vibe, head towards Gloucester Road. Hipster central and a cultural hub, shop, sit and sip surrounded by independent stores and eateries! From quirky cocktail shakes to colourful storefronts and graffiti that Banksy himself would be inspired by!

Dine & Drink in Bristol

Now you know this distinct district that makeup the heart of the city centre, let us help you in your decision to choose where to spend these precious hours with the birthday group during your VIP's night of celebrations!

Getting a venue to accept group bookings for over 8-10 people direct can be a struggle, which is why we include plenty of options to add to your package. Pre paid and food pre ordered, booking your Bottomless Dinner or meal in an Indian Curry House takes away all the stress from wandering the streets to find a large table during peak times!

However, we know after tiring yourselves out Axe Throwing or maybe you have some time to kill between your cheeky Life Drawing Class and your upcoming Bar Crawl, you may want some recommended places to stop by. Take a look at some of the venues in Bristol City Centre that we think your group may love!

The Burger Joint

Just a short walk from Park Street you will find this legendary burger bar. With over 12 years experience, The Burger Joint is rumoured to have the best burger in Bristol. Choosing between juicy steak burgers, to just as delicious veggie and vegan options may be a little easier than picking from the list of 29 toppings as you create your own custom burger!

Bristol & Bath Rum Distillery

If your groom-to-be is a rum, spirit and drinking kind of guy, than the Bristol & Bath Rum Distillery is a bar you are going to want to treat him to! Not only is the bar a spirit school and offer insane masterclasses, but they have 150 bottles of drink to enjoy. Set in a gorgeously designed industrial bar, this is next level drinking!


On the other side of the river you will find this modern diner, where the food is beyond what you could desire! Dirty burgers and filthy fries have never sounded so good!
