Blame Gloria Bristol


Gloria always threw the wildest parties. 

She had the best legs in Soho. Some say she dated Hendrix. She taught Bowie how to do his make-up. She first visited Bristol in 1973. After being called to save the day when Bowie’s makeup artist left her kit on a flight from Los Angeles…  

It was in the green room of Bristol Beacon during his Ziggy Stardust tour that Gloria introduced Bowie to her famous Flaming Zombie cocktail. David claimed it was like drinking rock in a glass, and legend has it, it remained on his artist rider until his death. 

So, in true Gloria style she’s going back to her roots once again and flinging open a new cocktail den in the heart of Bristol, with a beautifully decorated interior, and carefully selected cocktail menu. Perfect for private hires, birthdays, group bookings and corporate events. Sip on your favourite cocktail, beer or wine and party the night away with Gloria.
