A vintage and curious cocktail bar found in some of Bath's unique vaults; we're in the heart of this World Heritage City.Add Opium Bar to your Bath travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Bath visit planning site .
A quirky and delightful secret for the lucky few that venture to find it, Opium is tucked away under the landmark Pulteney Bridge much like the old Laudinum and Opiate dens of the Victorian era. The bar is stocked with a wide range of International beers and spirits and staffed by bartenders who can mix and concoct these ingredients into the most wonderous (and affordable) cocktails you've ever indulged in.
It's easy to imagine yourself in the company of Sherlock Holmes, H.G Wells, Janis Joplin or William Burroughs as you sip your perfectly made cocktail.
