Overview

Bath's premier cocktail bar serving the best cocktails in town since 2004. Big city style in an intimate, friendly environment. Sweeping leather booths and subtle lighting attract an intimate and vibrant crowd. And our hidden gem, the Perrier-Jouet Champagne terrace is a city centre oasis thats open till 1am and heated for the winter.

Sub 13 is always worth a visit, they serve a great range of cocktails that are good value, especially the 2for1 range, only downside is that you have to have two of the same one 🍸🍸More

Hi Gav H, Thanks for your feedback. I’m glad you enjoy the 2-for-1 cocktails. Sorry we insist they are two of the same, but it is to ensure that we can make our quality cocktails quickly during the popular 2-for-1 period. Hope that makes sense...More

Not really comfortable. They went for looks rather than comfort and the the cocktails are a bit pricey considering they are manly made of ice and pomegranate seeds. The drinks menu is not clear about what is 2 for 1. You can end up paying...More
