The Grade II-listed building on Bristol’s Park Street became available after café, Champagne bar and rooftop restaurant Goldbrick House closed its doors in May 2016 after a decade in operation.
The new NWTC concept’s drinks menu features 60 hand-picked beers, while its cocktail options revolve around three styles of floristry: English summer garden, Ikebana – the Japanese art of flower arranging – and modern contemporary; and promises drinks that both look and taste amazing.
The Florist has collaborated with local artists to adorn the walls of the new three-storey space with bespoke pieces – including Bristol-based contemporary artist Gemma Compton and graffiti artist Jody Thomas – as well as colourful floral displays.
The site’s food menu consists of deli, rotisseries and grill-inspired dishes with gluten-free, dairy and vegan options available.
The Florist will offer customers the chance to turn their hand to floristry and cocktail making with master classes available at £25 per person.
The Florist will join the Trading House, the Botanist, the Canal House, the Oast House, the Smugglers Cove and the Club House in the NWTC’s brand portfolio and will be open daily from 12pm to 12midnight – with extended opening hours until 1am on Thursday and until 2am on Friday and Saturday – with DJs playing every evening.
