Square Meal Review of Opium ?

One of several nocturnal Bath bars claiming to be the city’s best-kept secret, Opium is hidden in the historic vaults beneath Grove Street – just a short walk from the famous Pulteney Bridge. The venue’s striking interiors have been inspired by a broad swathe of historical periods, from the Renaissance and Louis IV to Victorian and art deco, although the knowledgeable and passionate bartenders owe more to the old-school bars of Boston, Massachusetts. Table service is available, and the place attracts a suitably savvy clientele with its mix of classic and contemporary cocktails, carefully considered wines and bottled beers from around the globe. Innovative mixes such as honey drop (honey and a fresh fig shaken with gold rum and pineapple) can be enjoyed with dishes from an internationally inspired tapas menu.
