Bath City

We visit the amazing street with a real buzz which is the best part of Bath Bath City News

There are so many great neighborhoods in Bath, but one in particular has become a real hub in recent years. With so many new cafes, bars and restaurants, this area is now very lively.

It’s like a little strip in its own right, with so many new and old places to visit. The area near Pulteney Bridge in Argyle St has recently become a bustling place, with restaurants like Chez Dominique and The Hive on one side, and great cafes and a proper beer bar on the other side leading into Bridge St and Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon.

It really is a great place to hang out now. Unfortunately there was no sun the day we visited, it’s even better when the sun is shining, everyone sitting outside.

It used to be pretty dead, with just tourist cafes and bath buns, but now the locals hang out in the mornings and evenings and there’s a real vibe. Although sad to see the disappearance of the Orvis and Hampstead Bazaar stores, the closure of some businesses has led to the opening of brand new ones, mainly in the hospitality sector.

If you walk past Laura Place on Great Pulteney Street in the morning, the whole neighborhood is buzzing. With cafes serving fresh Portuguese cream pies, Argentinian coffee, pancakes to die for, this really is the place to be.

Everything seems to have happened suddenly since confinement. Chez Dominique award-winning on one side serving upscale French cuisine, we like The Hive next door with its beautiful blue decor and great no-frills European cuisine, The Herd with its brilliant steaks raised on the local farm, Antica opposite for all things Italian and of course Beercraft where you can sit outside and enjoy perfect craft beers, ales and ciders.

It’s a big part of the city, I’m so lucky because I live near there. I love Cafe Cortado, the coffee is amazing and the food is great, the breakfasts beautiful and the fresh homemade salads and soups every day, the staff and owners are very friendly.

It’s my favorite place on weekends and days off, you can sit for hours, better not to as it’s quite small. All these great cafes and restaurants sit alongside the Oxfam and Dorothy House charity shops as they should have been there for years.

The Boater pub has also had a makeover. It used to be a rugby pub full of beer, full of fat bald men wearing Bath Rugby shirts.

No more. It’s now quite a chic place, with an upstairs restaurant, beautiful gardens overlooking the river, and decor that makes it look more like a wine bar. This whole area around Pulteney Bridge is really hot now.

So sad for the closed shops, victims of the pandemic, but hopefully these empty sites will make room for even more hospitality outlets and we will have more places to hang out in this amazing area of ​​Bath overlooking the majestic Pulteney Bridge and Weir.
