Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

“Nice vibe, good staff but seem to be short of the basics”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Visited on a recommendation. Really liked the relaxed atmosphere and the staff were attentive. Was asked what drinks we normally like and then offered some selections from the cocktail menu. We enjoyed all the cocktails we had, even when we swapped one of each others. One small gripe. We were going to have another cocktail each but for some reason the staff needed our menu. Perhaps it may be worth investing in some more menus as they lost out on another round of drinks from us because of that. Still came out with a nice warmth inside and smiles all round.

Great cocktails, fantastic barman! Ask Gareth to create you a cocktail based on your tastes and he will produce the goods, with style!

“Hen party”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

We booked the cocktail master making class and it was amazing. We had so much fun and constant laughter with Zac the barman. He entertained us for the whole two hours telling us about the history of some of the alcohol that we had in the cocktails. We would go back and do it again for sure.
