Share a romantic glass of wine over flickering candlelight, sip on decadent cocktails amongst friends, or sink into a deep armchair with a pint at Circo, one of the newest bars in Bath.Named after its circular bar, Bath's Circo cocktail bar and lounge is a chic blend of the old and new with classic panelled walls, luxurious velvet Chesterfield sofas and a cool palette of chic grey tones accented by dusky burnt orange highlights. Intimate and relaxed – one of Bath’s best secrets. Softly-dimmed pendulum lights and shimmering candles create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in this ultimate bar for grown-ups, which can be found next door to The Halcyon hotel on South Parade just off Pierrepont Street, 2 minutes from the station, perfect for your after work tipple – you deserve it!In the daytime you can connect to the free Wi-Fi, chill out with a coffee – or a cheeky glass of wine – from 5pm onwards and enjoy the refined, yet friendly, atmosphere as you sink into one of the sumptuous sofas with a couple of plates of delicious home cooked tapas and full meals. Or wait until darkness falls to enjoy the candlelit lounge with a soundtrack of eclectic chilled-out beats until 3am.The bar has an extensive wine and cocktail list is the order of the day and this is complemented by a range of carefully-selected spirits that bring the international taste of party hotspots like Brazil and Cuba to Bath. Circo is all about relaxation; so come in and unwind.The outdoor lounge is inspired by the laid-back vibe of Stockholm in the summer, where outdoor living isn't confined to hot sunny days. When the sun is shining, pull up a pew with a chilled beer in hand. When winter draws in cuddle up close and perhaps a dram of something a little stronger.
