For my birthday we spent the weekend in Bristol. A lovely colourful town full of lots of cool cocktail bars, brunch spots and of course colourful houses.
It was a joyous weekend, I’ve eaten my body weight in cake and thought I’d document our stay to share with you all. So, without further ado, here’s how to spend 48 hours in the beautiful Bristol:
Where to stay
We stayed at an apartment called SACO. Located right in the town centre. I booked via booking.com and paid around £100 for one night. The apartment came with a kitchen, dining area, TV, bed and bathroom. It was super stylish and we loved our stay here.
Where to go for coffee
Playground Coffee House do the most incredible and cute hot chocolates, I mean look at that artwork, how adorable. They also do amazing espresso martini’s, in which they’ve won awards for.
Where to go to eat
The Cosy Club has some fab brunch and dinner options. I went for the Cosy Club sandwich and it was delicious. I also treated myself to the lemon cheesecake, and oh my gosh, I’m still salivating!
The Florist is another great option for brunch or dinner. We went for dinner and I had the hanging chicken kebab and Joe had a veggie burger. Was delicious! The cocktails are also great too.
Where to go for drinks
Her Majesty’s Secret Service is where it’s at! I had a twister cocktail which was pear vodka and came with an ice lolly to eat, very cool. We also went for some halloween cocktails, one was gin based and the other was rum. AND, the Pornstar cocktail was far too good to drink.
Four Wise Monkeys is another great spot for food and cocktails. I had a beefeater gin with banana and lemon. Was interesting!
What to do
Wander around the streets, lots of colourful houses and graffiti to see!
Eat and drink till your heart is content!
Also check out the art museum, we didn’t get the chance to go but it has loads of cool upcoming artists work.
So that’s how to spend 48 hours in Bristol. It’s a super trendy city with lots of students walking around. Make the most of the quirky bars and yummy foods.
