Bristol will welcome a new cocktail bar and restaurant called The Bristologist on 10 November.

Inspired from the term ‘mixologist’ used for bartenders in cocktail venues, the brand aims to offer unusual food-inspired cocktails and innovative food.

Headed up by Darren Farquharson, the kitchen will serve a ‘slates and plates’ menu consisting of small plates, as well as Sunday roasts.

Business lunch

At lunch time diners will be offered an all-you-can-eat business option for £9, along with a steak menu allowing them to choose their cut and see it carved at their table before being cooked to their liking in the kitchen.

For every cocktail ordered, people will have the chance to flip a coin to get a second one for free, and those ordering a roast will also have the chance to win their meal.

The Bristologist is owned by James Sleeman and headed up by Christian Abbott as general manager.

Theatrical flair

Sleeman said: “I am so excited to be opening The Bristologist. Eating out should be fun and entertaining and that is exactly what we have set out to achieve.

“I think that what we have created in The Bristologist is something truly unique. Nowhere else in the area can you enjoy such fantastic and interesting food and drink offerings, with such theatrical flair.

“Christian has brought in Darren Farquharson to head up the kitchen,  he has previously worked under the award-winning Chef  Abbott for a number of years  so I know he is an immensely talented young chef and ready for his first head chef position - I am thrilled to have him on board.”

The Bristologist will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner on 48, Corn Street.

Bristol dining scene

Bristol has recently welcomed a number of newcomers and returning dining venues, with the launch of Argentinian steakhouse CAU in August​ and the reopening of all-day joint Melbournes​ after 15 years in September.
