With summer here and the temperature gradually climbing upwards (woohoo!), what better time to be down by Bristol Harbour enjoying tasty food and refreshing drinks? Well, the owners of new concept Harbour Hub see you.
The team which brought us Cotham Hill’s Rocksalt, who recently created the World’s Biggest Negroni, has teamed up with the owners of Dhamaka on Corn Street to launch a new place to eat and drink. Located in the old Spoke & Stringer unit on Gasworks Lane in Bristol, Harbour Hub is set to open this June and will be serving delicious bites and thirst-quenching drinks.
The building which boasts a beautiful archway entrance has been transformed into a bar and kitchen which will serve their own blend of Wogan coffee and croissants each morning. Then from 12 noon until 9pm, Harbour Hub will serve up fish and chips and other light bites, plus offer a full bar service in the evenings.
Drinks will include Iford Cider, Korev larger, Bath Ales Gem (all on draught), a wine list including Dunleavy Rosé, and a there will be a cocktail menu, which Operations Manager Ben Salgueno explains: “We have designed cocktails to reflect the simplicity and elegance of the venue – well known, recognisable classics with tropical flavours for the summer season and the waterfront location, from frozen pina coladas and basil margaritas to watermelon mojitos and espresso martinis.”
Harbour Hub, which opens to the public on June 10, not only offers your classic fish and chips but also light bites such as humous and flatbread, chicken Caesar salad, chilli chicken bites, Asian noodle salad, loaded fries, spring rolls, fries served with homemade vegan mayo and bloody Mary ketchup. And of course to add to the alfresco dining experience, diners can sit outdoors enjoying the view across the water and watch the boats cruise in and out of the harbour.
Ed says: “We are very excited to be opening a bar and kitchen in such an iconic Bristol location as we come into the summer season. If sipping frozen pina coladas or chilled local wine next to the water as the sun goes down is your vibe then I’ll see you this summer!”
Harbour Hub will be open Sunday – Thursday 8.30am – 10pm and Friday and Saturday 8.30am – 10.30pm.
