Harvey’s Cellars

Denmark Street, Bristol BS1 5DQ

Single-handedly trying to turn around the assumption that sherry is for grannies, Harvey’s Cellars in central Bristol is not just a regular sherry and tapas bar: it’s one with a great pedigree, located as it is on the site where, for decades, Harvey’s bottled its famous Bristol Cream. It’s an unusual concept, actually, and includes an art gallery, restaurant and bar as well as a small museum detailing Bristol’s sherry trade, plus plenty of cosy corners to hide out in and drink. It’s particularly popular with the post-work and pre-theatre crowd. We especially like the fact that there is a passageway in the back leading to the docks, first used by slavers and then those in the sherry trade. Quite the Bristol experience.
