Very bad service which meant we only stayed for 1 drink and won’t be returning!
Excellent service, and a great spot for a date but the drinks were pretty average. We had 4 in total and none of them were particularly special. There are much better cocktails to be found elsewhere in Bristol.
Great spot for a unique experience in Bristol. Ambiance, service and menu were spectacular and made the evening so special. Would highly recommend!
Amazing venue for high quality drinks. Amazing staff, highly recommended you visit Redlight.
Quirky as you enter by dialling a telephone box. Entering through a graffiti covered door we wee emet by one of the hostesses who showed us to our table. We were left quite a while before our order was taken and waited approximately 15-20 minutes before we received our drinks. We were a party of four and were placed on a table that was rather cramped and seemed to encroach on a couple located on the table next to us. Which you could visibly see made them uncomfortable. The drinks were however extremely tasty and well presented. After finishing our beverages we did not have a host check to see if we would like another. We then had to walk to the bar area to pay our bill. However we were asked if we enjoyed our drinks and the hostess offered much information when asked about other speakeasy's within Bristol. Overall an underwhelming experience but would give it another try due to the ambience and drinks.
Nice little hidden place, drinks Menu a tad disappointing but staff welcoming & friendly.
Toilets too dark & dingy for my liking, but would visit again.
Had a fabulous time, very friendly, lovely staff & delicious cocktails. Would definitely go again.
Cool venue and fun dialling the phone to get in. Only complaint is very over-priced drinks for what you get!
Nothing like I hoped
Decor underwhelming cheap and minimal
Drinks weren’t nice
We were not told prior to reserving a table that there would be a NYE £10 surcharge per person, so an additional £40 on our bill. Very steep and quite underhand if I’m honest. Left a sour taste, from a bar that I used to really enjoy going to.
Quite the most dreadful bar I can ever recall visiting. We were charged £10 a head for entry in exchange for a glass of lukewarm Prosecco, only to be offered a selection of mediocre cocktails presented for sale on a menu created using MS Word 2003. When the drinks did arrive they were served in a selection of washed out jam jars and translucent glasses that must surely have been stolen from my late grandmother’s estate (she died many years ago, but she did enjoy 70s style pyrex tumblers). And the cocktails themselves seemed to have been dreamed up by a selection of inebriated students participating in a ‘wacky’ RAG week challenge. Instead of Old Fashioneds and Long Island Iced Teas, we were treated to a Marmite and malt mash topped with a Malteser.
Oh, and a very drunk woman licked my wife’s face.
You do, though, have to pretend to use a phone to gain entry so, on balance, fifty quid for two cocktails that might have been bought for a fiver at M&S was well worth it.
The bar thought it was cooler than it was. Although well situated and in a excellent space, it was almost empty. The drinks were overpriced at the expense of an ‘experience’ it failed to deliver.
Its a nice place but ciuld do so much more and so much better. Would help if they cleaned the toilets. Overall very average experience
Perfect venue for a cosy date night and really loved the entrance. Great service, the waiting staff are lovely and friendly.
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 little place just off park Street. Great drinks in an unusual setting.
Great secret pub, excellent service and great drinks
Really nice! Bit pricey but I guess you pay for the experience as well!
Really great cocktail bar. Quite quirky but that’s why we liked it! Friendly servers and the cocktails were fab
Very good strong cocktails, great atmosphere and service.
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.
Lovely service, especially our waiter who was very knowledgeable, chatty and so nice.
We had a great time at RedLight for our work summer party. Cocktails were excellent! Would recommend.
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.
A great place for cocktails, knowledgeable and personable staff, friendly environment. A real gem of a place!
Went for some drinks as a group of 5, great service and cool place. Drinks on the pricey-side but they do taste great.
We had a fantastic time - great atmosphere and cocktails. The very unique entry adds to the experience!
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!
