James Lawrence, of The Spirits Business magazine, has hailed Bristol for its 'youthful vibe and energy' and names it as one of the best cities for nightlife.
In his article for the December edition of the magazine he reports that the city is 'creeping up the ranks of the best UK cities for drinking'.
Lawrence points out some of our favourites like The Milk Thistle and Faraway Cocktail Club who are adding 'sophistication and spice'. We also think everyone should visit the innovative Loose Cannon (they do one of Ben's favourite cocktails, a smoky whisky-based "Blood & Sands").
Novel Wines' team is based in Bath and, just like Bath, Bristol is a paradise for food and drink. Most excitingly of all, there is a swarm of innovation in the region bringing new and exciting concepts to the drinks trade.
Bristol is one to watch!
