A venue for the discerning drinker, The Milk Thistle is the sister of Bristol’s original Prohibition bar, Hyde & Co.

Spread across four floors and hidden in plain view right on the city centre The Milk Thistle is a haven of stunning architecture, eclectic decor and exceptional cocktails. The venue includes a clandestine hidden vault, a decadent lounge bar, and The Attic; a stunning dining room and bar ideal for private dinner parties, all in addition to The Parlour bar, which serves up some of the best cocktails in the city and an outdoor terrace overlooking the city centre.

We’re very excited to announce that have reopened our venue inside, in line with government guidelines.
