10 reviews of Hausbar in English
I'm firstly confused why this isn't listed as a cocktail bar as this is where Hausbar shines and puts itself way above the rest of the crowd!
The location is perfectly hidden and away from the usual mess you find elsewhere to create a friendly crowd of like minded people who have made the pilgramage up there. the atmosphere is relaxed, friendly and intimate with the previously mentioned prohibition/European feel perfectly blended.
If you make it past the entry policy, you're greeted with a perfectly crafted cocktail menu and drinks selection to please the palate of anyone who doesn't think Fosters and Pinot Grigio is the pinnacle of a night out. I personally recommend the best 'Él Presidente' I have had anywhere. the Staff also seem to be handpicked from what I can imagine is a long list of bartenders who want to work there. These guys are easily some of the best the South west and even the UK has to offer!
Not sure if it is a good idea putting this here, because the more people that discover the hausbar the more popular it is going to become.
This bar is run by a German - hence the name - in my opinion it should be ranked as one of the coolest bars in Bristol.
It has a certain feel to it - a bit of an underground, gambling, proper gentlemens club where suits are worn and people would smoke pipes and talk politics; blended with a European Bar/club feel in which you expect a beautiful brunette to walk in at any point and order a glass of the finest wine - followed a few minutes later by her husband and mate who order Ricard. If you could still smoke in this country, this place would be foggy. It is that sort of place.
If you are a group you need to book - if you are a large group wanting a quick couple of pints before moving on, this is not the place for you. If you are after some cocktails followed by a few whiskeys or the like then this is the place for you.
The atmosphere always seems to be friendly and relaxed. It is a gem - lets hope it stays that way..
