“Have we gone back to 2006?” It’s one of the first comments on the first Instagram post from Goldbrick House. But the post doesn’t come from 2006, or even 2016, it’s from December 1, 2023 – which might leave anyone who remembers the old Goldbrick House on Park Street a bit confused. But don’t be because the multi-level bar is back, at least in name, this March.
An iconic, much-loved bar on the busy Bristol street, the original Goldbrick House
was the go-to venue for many. As another person comments, it’s “Where we met 14 years ago, making a comeback in the year we celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary!” It closed back in 2016, after a decade, however, with the building more recently occupied by The Florist.
With the Mediterranean-inspired bar and restaurant closing back in April, it seems like Goldbrick House is back..? After a series of cryptic Instagram posts, describing it as “Bristol’s new favourite luxury bar and social experience”, we can confirm it will reopen at 69 Park Street on March 1. Situated halfway between Clifton Triangle and The Centre, with a capacity of 300, there’s something for everyone.
“We can’t wait to open the doors on the newly refurbished Goldbrick House,” said Goldbrick House Director, Paula Hanley. We invite Bristol to ‘Come Fabulous’ to experience all the fun of a proper night out in the beautiful setting we’ve created. I truly believe there is nothing quite like Goldbrick in Bristol right now and I know our guests are going to love what we’ve got planned for them. Let’s get the party started!”
