Great cocktails

Really love the cocktails and bar snacks here. The service is really good, the staff are very knowledgable and happy to make off-menu cocktails when requested. Will definitely revisit and plan to book to eat in the restaurant in the near future.

WOW what a fantastic bar. We visited on the recommendation of a friend. From walking in To walking out the quality of service was outstanding. We stopped for lunch and cocktails. My partner is gluten free and they couldn't have been more aware and accommodating. The food was fantastic and the cocktails were amazing. Upon leaving the bar we realised... More

Sipping away on cocktails whilst celebrating my best friends 30th. Ideal for a group of you celebrating, or a lovely cocktail or two as a couple. Quirky, stylish and delish. Never disappoints!

Visited here due to positive reviews on TA. Great little place with a kind of Moroccan vibe (colours and décor). The food was great, we shared 3 starters - Squid, Chicken skewers and Breads...and as it was a meat themed Monday, 1 of us ate the mixed grill whilst the other had beer battered fish n chips. Cant fault the... More

I regularly visit Barlounge for after work drinks with friends and pop in for the occasional lunch with my partner. I took my friend along for Sunday dinner and it was the first time she had tried the roast. Both of us were absolutely thrilled with the quality of the food and the service. The waiter, Sam went above and... More

Having not been for a while it was a real treat to go back. It's still the best bar in Chester by some way with excellent, friendly service and the best atmosphere in Chester.

Ate here based on other TripAdvisor reviews on a girly shopping trip with my teenage daughters. We were staying over for one night. Glad we'd booked as it was very busy so I'd recommend you book in advance. We were given tap water and a little pot of handmade chips on arrival which was a nice touch. We chose the... More

Only ever had drinks in this bar before but this time we decided to try the food. Absolutely nothing to fault at all, service was very good from the moment we arrived and the food was well cooked and very tasty . Look out for some deals in the week offering great value for money, we will be back. Thanks... More

Second time we`ve visited, and totally enjoyed our meals both times. Good selection on menu (wine and food) and cooked and served with total customer focus. Staff very friendly and add to whole experience of eating out.

The place had a decadent website and we wanted to celebrate a child's Birthday. I checked the menus to see if it was child friendly. To my surprise it had not only a child's menu but a really thoughtful one! Still I was a little concerned as we were holidaying in the area and knew no one that could confirm... More
