The Bristol outpost of the nationwide Revolution Bars group finds its home in the surrounds of the Old Fish Market building, occupying a smart two-floor space. It’s an attractive prospect for private dining, with the venue’s fun, buzzy atmosphere making it a great fit for celebration dinners and special occasions.
Although there is not a dedicated private dining room at the venue, Revolution Bristol does offer private and group dining opportunities. Namely, the venue can accommodate private dinners on its Mezzanine level, which is away from the hubbub of the restaurant, but overlooks the main bar so that you don’t entirely lose the atmosphere. The Mezzanine can host groups of up to 50 guests for a sit-down meal, while 80 guests are allowed for standing functions, such as cocktail and canapé receptions.
If you’re hosting the latter, you can make use of Revolution Bristol’s considered canapé and bar snack menu. Canapés include a miniature helping of avocado on sourdough toast sprinkled with chilli flakes, as well as calamari with lemon mayonnaise, and ‘beet balls’ – beetroot, coriander and mint falafel served with tomato sauce. The slightly larger bar snacks offering meanwhile, sees the hearty likes of beef sliders, Cajun popcorn shrimp with lemon mayonnaise and hummus on charred tortilla.
Those who are looking to put together a seated meal, whether that be for lunch or dinner, can select one of Revolution Bristol’s party menus. The Premium Dining menu is the obvious choice for special occasions, featuring the tempting likes of beef short-rib slathered with barbecue sauce and served with onion rings and fries, or lobster ravioli with a Prosecco cream sauce. You can round off your meal with a slice of New York cheesecake or a warm chocolate brownie.
On a budget? Bristol Revolution has plenty of options for you, with a well-priced two- or three-course set falling under the party menus umbrella, as well as lunchtime and evening buffets, which are replete with crowd-pleasing dishes such as classic pizzas and sticky chicken in a barbecue sauce.
