super hard entrance to find, but that's all part of the fun! it was quiet, but that's because we were there early, can imagine this place really livens up later on at night. Fantastic cocktails, reasonable prices and really friendly staff - will definitely be back and absolutely loved it!

Went for a few cocktails for a friend’s birthday. Always love coming here. Never had food so hence the three stars for food. Everything else is always great!

Brought my sister and brother in law here on Saturday night. I’ve been before and have absolutely loved the cocktails and the atmosphere of the red light. So it was a no brainier to bring the family here to waow them.
We arrived having already been out drinking all day, so none the less we where, three sheets to the wind.
The cocktails we got where gorgeous although my sister got one she didn’t like but, that was just a taste preference. The service from the guy that looked after us and a girl as well, they where lovely!
Will always return and will always bring family and friends when they visit.
So thank you for just being you!:)

Arrived at 11pm, thankfully we booked ahead of time as they were turning people away in front of us! We were taken to our seats by a lovely waitress, and shown the menus. The cocktails were incredible; I simply said to the bartender what cocktails I usually enjoyed, and he came up with the best cocktail I’d ever had. Talent! The ambience was incredible, both my partner and I had a great time! Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Bristol!

I have already recommended this place to a few people since going. I had to rate food although I didn't eat. The staff were lovely, drink was tasty, music was a good vibe to the speakeasy charm. Worth a visit past 7pm, made for a cute date stop.

A cool prohibition style bar. Great service and drinks (we didn’t have any food). The drinks and cocktail menu is a little restricted (no coffee for espresso martinis and no diet mixers) but a great little find and perfect for impressing a date with your knowledge of underground places to go for an intimate late night drink.

Red Light kindly held our table even though we were late. My friends and I enjoyed the cocktails our server recommended to us, and the great atmosphere and music made the night special.

Great place with great old fashioned cocktails though staff would have made you anything I believe if you wanted a more modern cocktail. Generally all cocktails £10. Really excellent service and we had a great time for my friends hen do. Not a really rowdy typical hen place but a nice classy affair. Excellent service.

Went for some drinks as a group of 5, great service and cool place. Drinks on the pricey-side but they do taste great.

Absolutely amazing wee place, handy to town, handy to park street and taxis and transport. Very unique venue with a lovely art deco and old style of delightful cocktails mainly prohibition style. Comfortable chairs, good noise level and ambience with music in the back ground and other customers and simply the best staff. Have to say a big thank you to Ellie the manager who offered us drinks similar to what we were having to allow us to try a different palate and range of thing, she was so friendly and interacted in a professional and charismatic way that incould be back. She gave us a quick run down of other bars and restaurants to try as we had just moved to Bristol and very much made our night memorable. Personal touches with excellent service and decent drinks to boot! Will be returning with friends and family. A big thank you from Alice and Stephen!
