Very nice atmosphere, you can see the pizzas cooking from your table and watch the fab bar staff mix cocktails like a pro! The beer garden is lovely but doesnt get the sun. The cocktails are very tasty (the one with the apricot especially!) and the pizzas are gorgeous, thin and crispy, great choice and the staff are only too happy to add extra toppings or pack one into a take home box! Whether its packed or not the staff make you feel like the only people there, cannot praise the service enough!

the pizza's are still DELICIOUS however the menu changed a year ago, to a very slightly inferior selection. there also used to be a cask ale at the bar (no longer) & you also could choose ANY pizza's in the 241 option. it's still a great pizza experience though! p.s. bring back the gourmet olive oils!!!

I regularly come here for a pizza with friends or my partner as it is 2 for 1 all day, every day on really lovely pizzas. They have a great thin base with a crispy crust and lovely fresh ingredients. There are also good drinks offers on happy hour which also applies at weekends (unusual for a city centre bar). They've made a lot of changes over the years including rebranding from Rise@The Hallamshire to bloo88 but I'm glad they seem to have kept the best parts. 2 great large pizzas for a tenner, can't go wrong!

Up until this point I had somehow avoided going to Bloo88, the new pizza bar on west street and I was impressed on my first visit.

Popped in for a friend's 21st birthday and was impressed by the incredibly friendly bar staff and quirky feel to the place.

I very much prefer Bloo88 to some of the other west street bars, which are focussed on getting as many people packed in and buying alcohol. Bloo88 is a much more chilled and has some fantastic cocktails and equally as tasty pizzas too!

The only gripe might be the prices are marginally more expensive than some of the other bars on the street, but if you bring a friend most, if not all of the items are 2 for 1, so gripe no longer- just get some friends!

Quality pizzas, Quality drinks and a pleasant place to be!

Growing up in Chicago I have become a pizza snob. We bought a Groupon to try Bloo88 a year ago and have been going back ever since. The pizzas,salads and cocktails are amazing! Fresh ingredients and 2 for one classic pizzas every day are a fabulous value. Everyone should try what a real, fresh handcrafted pizza should taste like!
The coctails are also very creative and sooooooooooo tasty, very moreish.
