An American diner by day, The Love Inn kicks off in Bristol’s Stokes Croft as a party bar come the evening.
If you like a bit of fire to your mixed drink, The Love Inn Mary should do the job, incorporating gin with an in-house spice mix packed with smoky paprika. Easier on the tastebuds but no less of a disco in your mouth, It’s a Love Ting is another gin-based drink – zesty pineapple and a cute-sounding Ting top make it ideal for summer sipping. The fast food menu slips down a storm, and includes a triple slider selection alongside classic burger combos served on red plastic trays.
Later on, casual dining is somewhat restricted as late-night Bristol revellers flock to The Love Inn for house music grooves and good times.
Best Bars tip: A petite smoking area can become quite the flirting ground for ever-friendly Bristolians – it’s The Love Inn by name and nature, then.
