Bristol Spirit bar kitchen is the home of Espensen Spirit - it is our equivalent of a tap room!
The bar is at 86 Whitehall Road, Bristol, BS5 9BQ. Our number is 0117 939 3552. We are open from 6-10.30pm Wed-Fri, on Saturdays from 4-10.30pm and Sundays 12-5pm.
We serve our naturally infused spirits of course, and we also have a great selection of local beers, a cracking wine list and a variety of soft drinks including mocktails and low sugar options.
We have an ongoing series of pop-ups and kitchen take overs or our own bar menu, which changes seasonally. We also serve Sunday roasts - though we are having a roast hiatus during August and will be closed on Sundays during August.
Events wise, we have a cinema club, our 'Stand-up for Movies' event which is a film trivia game and a stand-up set from a guest comedian, we are the Bristol venue for Classic Album Sundays and we also show some sport on our big screen.
Our venue has a calm, relaxed atmosphere, full of movie and music related art, and we play a wide range of different music, at a level where you can chat properly while enjoying listening to it.
You can hire Bristol Spirit out, and we host birthdays, hen/stag dos, gin tastings or our speciality, our learn to make infused spirits workshops with Sam Espensen.

Naasto Baasto is the brainchild of Monica Patel, who recently left a job as manager at Bakesmiths to set up on her own. Monica explains that Naasto Baasto is "a tribute to my ba (grandmother) - who was a wonderful strong woman, and the most caring wife, mum and grandmother. Gujarati families always bring out a spread of food when guests visit. Ba was the cook and my dada (grandfather) was the one who was always inviting people into their home. We're called Naasto Baasto because my grandparents - especially my granddad - had a habit of rhyming words, even if the second word was absolute nonsense, which baasto is, and Naasto means snack.”
