Great atmosphere

Great sounds and great atmosphere for the over 30's. Good outside area with even better overhead heating for those chilly nights.

Fantastic service. Great outdoor seating area gets pretty busy outside so it's good to get there early or even reserve a table. Excellent food and great cocktails! Best bar in Chester by a long shot!!

We always visit the bar lounge when we go to Chester, in fact it is now the reason we return to Chester so often. The staff are so professional, friendly and efficient. We have got to know them now and although they must meet thousands of customers weekly they always take time to remember us. We only mentioned when asked... More

I asked a young woman in the street where is the best Indian Restaurant in Chester Barton Rougue she said and she was right. A wonderful meal in a good location. Indian food at it's best, the service was good and efficient, perhaps a little rushed

A large group of us ate here in August 2015. We ordered from the reduced seasonal menu. All of the food was fantastic with an absolutely superb cheescake for pudding.

Booked a weekend in Chester for a girly catch up and was recommended to visit Barlounge for food and cocktails. It's a fairly small bar but it was still pretty busy with a good atmosphere on a Monday evening. The food we ate was really tasty and good value and our drinks were served promptly at fair prices. I've given... More

Wow!!!! The exterior decor looks so inviting, fancied a cocktail mid afternoon but waited for after our evening meal. Certainly not as expected, so much better!! Good choice, well presented, great friendly staff. Even sat outside during a downpour with the cover of large umbrellas and heat lamps. Really enjoyed the visit but especially the complementary dessert because of our... More

The food is amazing, I had fish of the day, washed down by a couple of their amazing cocktails. Well worth a visit if you fancy something a little more upmarket for dinner. Staff are lovely and service is great.

Just popped in here for lunch by chance - very pleasantly surprised. Think of it as a very, very good, upmarket Witherspoon, but way better. Superb service from our waitress and bill came to around £46 for lunch - 3 adults and 1 child. Nice clean, modern interior, great bar with plenty of character and the food was excellent and... More

A day out shopping in Chester starting with some morning refreshments at Bar Lounge. From the moment we walked in we were treated so well, the staff here are really, really brilliant! A couple of prosecco and gins later we decided to have a few bits from the share platter. This was beautiful!!! Infact, we were so impressed with everything... More
