Opium Bar


Tucked out of sight beneath Pulteney Bridge, this subterranean bar is one of Bath’s best kept secrets, which is a good thing cos it ain’t huge! Opium is sexy and decadent with all its opulent vintage decor and quirky nooks and crannies. We loved the wall mounted boar in a hat and beyond the bejewelled bar you'll find three linked lounges, each with their own period style, oooh.

The first, and our personal favourite, has some kinda Boheme slash Renaissance style, with a lavish ceiling and old pianos draped in red curtains, it’s super sexy but also kinda cosy. Get stuck into their delicious range of cocktails (do try the Lychee Rose Petal), but if that’s not for you then there is wine and a load of beers. It’s really laid back and staff are super friendly and they'll have you feeling like the Fonz after a few visits.
