Where To Celebrate Burns Night In Bristol



Burns Night in Bristol

Burns Night, probably one of the best nights of the year. Why? Whisky, reciting poetry loudly and haggis! OK, not everyone’s cup of tea but if it’s good enough for the Scots then we will try and piggy back on it anyway we can!

Luckily for us, there are loads of great places in Bristol that are putting on Burns Night evenings so that we can get involved. Here are just some that we have seen…

Burns Night Whisky Club at Hyde & Co

The grandfathers of the hidden cocktail bar, Hyde & Co are of course championing an event that lets them show of their whisky knowledge and cocktail mastery. They will be joined by Max Helm, spirit ambassador for Glenmorangie, and his team, who’ll be on hand to guide you through a delicious tasting of their range of Scotch whiskies, and the exceptionally talented team at Hyde will be showcasing their skills creating a delicious whisky cocktail or two.

Tickets are £25 and include a whisky cocktail on arrival, a tutored tasting of the Glenmorangie range and some light nibbles, courtesy of The Ox restaurant (veggie options will be available).

Burns Night At The Canteen

Perhaps you want more of a knees up to celebrate Burns night? Well, the Canteen have just the thing for you! Or as they say….

“If you’re going to celebrate Scotland’s greatest poet then you definitely need the kind of full-blooded roots music that Fitty Gomesh make. Ripsnorting traditional folk dance tunes from the Celtic fringes all cranked up to get you stripping the willow until you can strip no more.”

Sounds marvelous! They will also have a Scottish menu for you, check out the event here:

Murder Mystery, A Burns Night Special at the Bristol Museum

Hold the phone! A murder Mystery Burns Night special, where do we sign up!? Good work Bristol Museum who will be hosting this event at the Winterstoke and Wills Hall at Bristol Museum with whisky cocktail on arrival and live bagpiper to pipe in the Haggis. There will be a three course Scottish themed dinner with coffee and petit fours with DJ and disco until 1am and a prize for the winning team. Tickets are £49.95 per person and the event runs on the 26th and 27th

Burns Night Supper at the Milk Thistle

Little, although not in size, brothers of Hyde & Co, The Milk Thistle are also celebrating Burns Night but with a supper in their intimate attic space- which not many people get to see!

For £55 you can join them for a night of traditional Scottish food, cooked by the chefs from The Ox Bristol, matched with a specially created Whisky cocktail flight and tastings of several exceptional whiskies from the fine folk at Glen Grant.

Stay At Home With Whisky

Because Robert Burns would have wanted you to! Of course, having a think of the old Bard and reading some of his poetry on this day would also be an apt celebration!
