Top 50 Cocktail Bars


Filthy XIII

Bristol, Somerset

One of Bristol’s best-known independent cocktail bars, Filthy XIII is an outstanding venue filled with personality and sensational cocktails.

Situated on Cheltenham Road, the venue is subdued and trendy with a black exterior featuring graffiti-style caricatures above the door.

Inside, you’ll find a moodily lit bar area with lots of places to sit, which is perfect for catching up with small groups of friends.

The menu can be extensive or concise, with some notable serves including the Lychee Martini, made with Bombay Sapphire, lychee, Sauternes and fizz; the Absinthe Frappe is made with Hendrick’s Absinthe, melon, mint and ice; and the Umeshu Ice is made using Hennessy VS, Umeshu and soda.

Other drinks include the Zero Degree G&T, made with Roku Gin, mandarin and green tea and tonic; the Pornstar Spritz, made with Grey Goose, Bristol Cream Sherry, passionfruit and vanilla; and the Scotch and Champagne, which is made using Glenmorangie 10, Moet & Chandon Imperial and soda.

There is a distinct Asian vibe to the menu, providing a refreshing twist on some much-loved classics. For us, the Scotch & Champagne is one of the most exciting drinks on the menu, taking a popular Chinese serve and elevating it with a ultra-lux twist.
