Tucked away on a small, nondescript street, Hyde & Co is a small dark venue with an unmarked, locked entrance. Once you've buzzed to get in, a black panelled hall leads to a living room set-up spread out over three rooms. It's scattered with low plump leather stools, deep orange lamps and eclectic artefacts that litter the wall recesses and the lid of a small piano.
Cocktails are presented on an artistic menu charting its way through low abv drinks to those which a bit more punch. A skilled team tends the bar here, with effusive hospitality and the clientele is largely made up of regulars, settling into their comfy secretive corners. Drinks are well-made, balanced and ultimately a testament to their creators. We were impressed with the creativity and service involved.
An intimate venue with a formidable menu, this is a must-visit when in Bristol.
