Opium Bar, Bath

4.6
#10 of 51 in Nightlife in Bath
A vintage and curious cocktail bar found in some of Bath's unique vaults; we're in the heart of this World Heritage City.

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.

  • A lovely and quirky little placed tucked away in the vaults near the weir. I've been going to Bath for many years and never knew about this little gem until the maître d of a nearby restaurant recommended it to us. Will definitely visit again.
  • This place is just crazy three room to sit down in and enjoy a cocktail beer or wine. Each room decorated and furnished in the most unique way. Bar staff are amazing top place to visit
