Bath's premier cocktail bar serving the best cocktails in town since 2004. Big city style in an intimate, friendly environment. Sweeping leather booths and subtle lighting attract an intimate and vibrant crowd. And our hidden gem, the Perrier-Jouet Champagne terrace is a city centre oasis thats open till 1am and heated for the winter.

Such a quirky place with great decor and cosy corners, so friends can chat. We went in for cocktails but only stayed for one. Unfortunately, the barman that served us wasn't very welcoming and was a little pedantic. It put us off visiting the bar to reorder. I wonder if perhaps, sub thirteen is targeting a younger audience and our... More

This place is the best night out in Bath. The garden with heated seats is amazing! We had delicious cocktails made for us by Bella our bartender and she gave us loads of useful advice for our stay in Bath too. Will definitely be back, an absolute gem of a place!

Retaining the cellar cove rooms, the inside of this place can get booked up but it's hidden gem is the huge extended garden that is well lit and heated out back. Smooth grooves filter over the groups of chit chatting dudes and peacock looking gals but you are also just as likely to see a few woolly hatted shoppers treating... More

Hi Sam M, Thanks so much for your brilliant review of our garden - we are very lucky to have a great space but it is always great to read that people appreciate it! The terrace bar is certainly popular with its 2for1 as you say! Many thanks again and look forward to seeing you on your next visit. Many... More

Great masterclass this weekend at Sub13. Expertly led by Tim we were shown the key techniques involved and made a fair few cocktails ourselves. Really friendly team and good atmosphere, we really enjoyed it.

Visited here Saturday night after being before. It's a gorgeous cellar bar offering amazing drinks. It's quite dark, and with loud music, so its definitely a going out bar, but it's fantastic and still an upmarket atmosphere with tables (ie it's not a bar you stand up in) and candles. Nice service. Garden terrace too.

This is a hidden gem of Bath. This bar is underground and has a nice beer garden to sit in. The music was very chilled out and they done 2for1 on cocktails.
