8 Awesome Places To Drink Gin In Bristol

Bristol Gin Bars

There are few joys simpler than a G&T enjoyed in the sunshine, and seeing as we’re now on the slow descent into autumn, it’s time to start taking advantage of the warm evenings while they’re still around.

Here are Bristol’s best G&T joints, from quirky cocktail bars through to neighbourhood pubs. Stay classy, Bristol; and by classy, I mean sozzled.

1. Pump House

If we’re talking gin, then this harbour gem is The Don. At the time of writing they have over 600 gins behind the bar, and craft each G&T combo with finesse. You’ll probably never make it through their entire selection, but given their waterside view and excellent menu, there are few places better to enjoy a sophisticated drink al fresco.

2. Psychopomp

Bristol’s very own microdistillery and bar, located at the top of St Michael’s Hill, and well worth the trek too. Take a seat and marvel at their copper still and shelves of lovely homemade gin, then work your way through the menu. They offer tasting sessions and there’s also talk of a ‘How to make your own gin’ class in the near future too…

3. Milk Thistle

Not only does this classy cocktail joint do one of the best Aviations in town and have a great flagship gin cocktail in the form of the Milk Thistle Daisy, but you can also extend your knowledge of all things gin at one of their monthly Gin Clubs. One for some late night gin appreciation.

4. Bravas

Moving to a more Mediterranean vibe, this small tapas Bristol bar on Cotham Hill not only serves up great food, but a spot on G&T menu to match. Choose from classics such Martin Millers with grapefruit and lemon zest, or Bombay Sapphire with orange & lemon zest and flaked almonds. Their Gingria is also a perfect accompaniment to some Spanish snacks whilst sat up at the bar.

This vintage tea room isn’t just great for scones and tiny sandwiches – they also offer some more booze-centric frolics, including their Gin & Cheese Club, where 2 people can share a cheese board and get a G&T each for a total of £26. Gin, cheese and cake – what’s not to like??

6. The Green Man

This teeny neighbourhood pub in Kingsdown may seem like an ale drinker’s paradise, but their gin selection is also mighty impressive (over 50 at the last count). Why not make an evening of it and head around to The Shakespeare nearby in Redland to make the most of their 3 premium G&Ts for a tenner offer.

7. Weber & Tring’s

Want some top notch gin to enjoy in the comfort of your own home? Or want to buy the perfect present for that G&T guzzler dear to your heart? Pop along to this lush shop on Christmas Steps and take your pick from their premium selection – they also sell a range of tonics, nice glasses and gift sets, as well as running their own tasting classes and ‘Make your own gin’ workshops.

8. Dutch

Bristol’s first proper dedicated gin bar & restaurant with an extensive range of gins, cocktails and nibbles. They also host a great mix of events throughout the month.

Still thirsty? Maybe have a day trip to Thornbury just outside Bristol to go and visit the 6 O’Clock Gin distillery?
