Bonds Wine Bar, Walliscote Road, Weston

Away from the seafront there are other great places to enjoy a glass of wine or a pint. However, Bonds’ cocktails remain its crowning glory and it has a wide selection of tipples to choose from, including old favourites such as a mojito. But, if you know your cocktails, you can ask the bar staff to make you a drink of your choice and they will be happy to help. Situated conveniently close to Dolphin Square and the Odeon cinema means its the perfect place to spend an evening.

With live music playing often on a Friday and Saturday night, The Imperial is a wonderful venue to enjoy a cocktail with friends. Local bands are often given the chance to showcase their unquestionable talents and it means The Imperial is always a lively place to visit on the weekend. At other times of the week though it is a sedate and hugely relaxing spot – you would not know it is just yards away from Weston’s bustling High Street and town centre!
