A new cocktail bar and ‘punch house' named Her Majesty's Secret Service (HMSS) has opened in Bristol.
The new venture comes from the team behind London cocktail bar and consultancy group the Cocktail Trading Co. It is on Whiteladies Road, next to Clifton Down station and serves a wide range of cocktails within an environment aiming to be relaxed, luxurious, and creative. There are also punches and non-alcoholic ‘faux-tails' available, alongside tastings, masterclasses, and cocktail events.
The design has been described by the founders as having a mixture of influences; industrial, gin palace, espionage, and regal drinking parlour. It is inspired by the type of place in which ‘James Bond would hide from his associates'.
Opened 24 July
