Bath is a beautiful historic city, full of bars and pubs, but when the sun comes out, the best way to have a drink is by chilling at a rooftop bar. What can be more relaxing than a glass in one hand and a buzzing portable fan in the other? Here are the four rooftop bars in Bath you will want to try…
1 Old King St, Bath BA1 2JW
This stunning bar and restaurant can be found in the centre of Bath and has a variety of floors/rooms suitable for different occasions, including a roofbar with stunning views for all day drinkers. Plus, whilst you’re enjoying a cocktail in the sunshine, you can also treat yourself to a bit to eat if you’re feeling peckish as their menu will spoil you for choice.
23-24 Monmouth Pl, Bath BA1 2AY
On the outskirts of the city centre, you will find The New Inn, which serves a variety of drinks that you can sit and enjoy on their rooftop, including a selection of cask ale and craft beer. This means you can enjoy an afternoon sipping a pint in the sun without the noise of the city centre, and as this roof bar is not as well known you won’t have to worry about not having a table for you and your friends to sit and gossip at for hours on end.
Longmead Gospel Hall, Lower Bristol Rd, Bath BA2 3EB
Not only is The Mint Room a great place to go and have a drink, but it’s also been ranked by The Times as one of the 30 best places to have a curry in the UK. Meaning whilst there, you will be sorted for all your curry and cocktail needs. So you could have a fine dining experience downstairs before going upstairs for a relaxing drink.
9 Brunel Square, Bath BA1 1SX
Conveniently located next to the train station, Graze is the perfect place to start your night out. Not only does it have a vast selection of food, but it also has a rooftop bar with stunning views. The atmosphere is very chill, and the design is modern with a touch of whimsy thanks to their giant cow statues. So if you do decide to spend the night drinking in there, make sure none of your friends decide to try and climb the giant cow no matter how tempting it might be to let them.
