Casablanca Cocktails: A Hollywood-Inspired Bar Arrives At The Bristol



Now Open

Inject your plans with a dose of glamour from Hollywood's Golden Age at this popular harbourside hotel. Taking its name from Rick's Café Américain - the nightclub and gambling hotspot that appeared in iconic 1942 movie Casablanca - the brand new bar is all sorts of swanky. Step inside Rick's at The Bristol, where you’ll find wicker furnishings, huge leafy plants and a cosy fireplace, all soundtracked by mellow jazz. Better yet, there's also a swoon-worthy waterfront terrace for alfresco moments.

And when you're not ogling your date or taking in the river scenes? You'll certainly want to check out the signature cocktail menu. Whet your whistle with the rum-laced Ripples On The Sea that combines coconut and pineapple, or go for a vermouth-centred Secret Longings. As for food, tuck into a selection of elevated bar snacks, including oysters and focaccia, alongside a brunch offering from Friday to Sunday.
