The Florist Bristol

Living in Bristol gives me the perfect opportunity to visit some incredible restaurants and bars. I love living in the city as there’s always so much choice as to where to spend your evening. I recently visited The Florist on Park Street, Bristol, which is definitely one to add to the list.

My boyfriend and I were so excited to attend the launch night, but I don’t think either of us expected it to be as unique and charming as it was.

As the name suggests, the cocktail bar and restaurant is filled with incredible fresh flowers and the most stunning decor. On arrival were greeted with a Violet Fizz cocktail, which looked and tasted amazing.

We headed upstairs to the Neon Lounge to enjoy our cocktails, where we were greeted by a DJ and more incredible decor.  I couldn’t get over how great the atmosphere was. The team explained that there is live music most nights, which I will definitely be returning to see.

The neon sign surrounded by pink roses was an incredible feature wall. The quirkiness fitted perfectly with the open fire and crushed velvet furniture. 

After having a good look around, it was time for some gin tasting. The gin was supplied by The Wild Beer Co and although they’re not well known for their gin, I was really impressed. The floral notes were really refreshing and it worked incredibly well with the whole atmosphere.

After the gin tasting, I was ready to jump in and try out some cocktail making for myself. I made an Apple & Vanilla Monthe which was perfect. The cocktail contained Tanqueray Gin and even had an edible flower to top it off.

After filling ourselves up on cocktails, it was time to sample some of the nibbles they had out for us. My favourite had to be the freshly made bread. We were given goats cheese and lavender butter to spread on it, which I know sounds odd – but it really did taste incredible! 

The whole night was perfect and I couldn’t fault a thing. We really enjoyed our time there and I can’t wait to return for a cocktail night with the girls. If you’re thinking of trying out somewhere new and refreshing, I definitely recommend you check out The Florist.
