And fan­tas­tic bars a cool place to live

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

The Trin­ity Cen­tre, which re­cently an­nounced that its fu­ture has been se­cured, is one of the city’s most unique live mu­sic venues and wel­comes an ar­ray of live bands and DJ nights.

At the other end of the stretch there’s Ex­change, which is cur­rently try­ing to be­come the city’s first com­mu­nity-owned mu­sic venue..

On top of that both The Old Mar­ket Assem­bly and The Stag and Hounds are also home to live mu­sic, so across the four venues there’s most def­i­nitely some­thing to ap­pease ev­ery­one’s mu­si­cal tastes.

West Street Kitchen, spear­headed by Mil­lie Driessen and Nathan Har­ber, not only does fan­tas­tic cof­fee but it also has a menu of whole­some grub with the added bonus of mar­vel­lous cakes from ta­lented baker Mil­lie.

Then you’ve got the afore­men- tioned cheese toasties at No 25a and some of the finest bread money can buy from The Assem­bly Bak­ery, not to men­tion the nu­mer­ous treats on of­fer from lunch spe­cial­ists Tif­fin Time and in­dul­gent cup­cakes from The Drunken Cup­cake.

Culi­nary de­lights

Fierce in­de­pen­dence

Old Mar­ket em­bod­ies Bris­tol’s in­de­pen­dent spirit, with no chains in sight and indie busi­nesses pop­ping up all the time. Re­cent open­ings in­clude The Drunken Cup­cake and prin­ters Live Ink, who moved from Lon­don to make Old Mar­ket their new home ear­lier this year.

The fi­nal say

Old Mar­ket might not be an ob­vi­ous choice for such a list, but the area has come a very long way. The once for­got­ten cor­ner of Bris­tol city cen­tre has been qui­etly on the rise, and just like that it has be­come a vi­brant, foodie, in­ter­est­ing neigh­bour­hood.
