The Architect Café BarThe Architect is an art deco café bar bringing a taste of Europe to Bristol’s historic harbour. By day, The Architect is a warm, welcoming haven on the quayside, serving speciality coffees, teas & sourdough sandwiches — it’s the perfect place to meet, or take a quiet moment to read & make plans. By night, The Architect is a sophisticated bar with signature cocktails, fine wines & craft beers, served alongside cheese & charcuterie boards. In the summer, our terrace is where you can catch the evening sun with a unique view of the water, passing ferry boats & the lively festival culture.

The Architect has instantly become one of my favourite Bristol haunts. The cosy bar brings a sophisticated and glamourous 1930s style to the bustling harbourside.
