Now, I’m not one to have favourites… But I must admit my heart skips a little at this next venue.

Independently run ‘The Milk Thistle’ is housed over four floors in one of the finest historic buildings in the city of Bristol.

When your guests arrive at this City Chic venue they are served delicious signature cocktails, bubbles and tempting canapés.

Later you can move to ‘The Milk Thistle’s’ Lounge that can house a band or DJ, you might even fancy the recommended gramophone DJ spinning some tracks in this cool, ‘underground’ venue.
