Owner description: A vintage and curious cocktail bar found in some of Bath's unique vaults; we're in the heart of this World Heritage City. A quirky and delightful secret for the lucky few that venture to find it, Opium is tucked away under the landmark Pulteney Bridge much like the old Laudanum and Opiate dens of the Victorian era. The bar is stocked with a wide range of International beers and spirits and staffed by bartenders who can mix and concoct these ingredients into the most wondrous (and affordable) cocktails you've ever indulged in. It's easy to imagine yourself in the company of Sherlock Holmes, H.G Wells, Janis Joplin or William Burroughs as you sip your perfectly made cocktail. £5 for any cocktail Tues-Thurs , Friday until 8 pm.Check out the secret room for parties. To appreciate the beauty of the place have a virtual tour on our website.

I really like the decor and the place smells amazing! The barman, with the wacky hair, was so diligent in preparing our cocktails that he made the preparation an event in itself! Great cocktails, good music and a nice eclectic vibe

Definitely worth a visit. Down a side street and under a walkway it's not easy to spot but when you find it you'll understand why it's worth it. The decor is very quirky and you won't struggle to find any talking points or anywhere to sit as it is kitted out with comfy sofas etc. The cocktails are yummy (ours cost just over £10 for 2 - but you get your monies worth in quality!). I will ensure I return on my next visit to bath.

What a great place to chill out. Such an interesting bar with its cool Victorian opium den history. Great cocktails and lovely staff.

This bar was difficult to find but well worth the visit. It's a nice quirky bar that's reminiscent of Szimpla Kert in Budapest. Service was really good . Definitely worth a visit.
