New foodie hangout opens at Finzels Reach this week

Bocabar joins the party at Bristol’s fast-expanding culinary destination

Bocabar is set to open a brand new bar and restaurant. It will be joining the likes of Spicer and Cole, Café Matariki and Left Handed Giant in the Fermentation Buildings, part of the vast Finzels Reach redevelopment that once housed the production of drinks like Courage beer. 

The new ground-floor venue (just underneath Channel 4’s new hub) will offer the same food and drink that has made the Paintworks and Glastonbury sites so popular, including the popular stone-baked pizza menu as well as cocktails, specialist gins, local craft beers and wines. The new site also has a partly covered terrace that can accommodate 70, for those lazy summer lunch breaks that last perhaps longer than they should (pro tip: invite the boss and you might just get away with it).

With 15 successful years running the business, one-half of the husband and wife team, Mel Eavis, is eager to open the doors on this latest location. 

“For us, it’s all about focusing on high-quality produce and local suppliers, and we can’t wait to welcome people to our new venture very soon!”

Bocabar Finzels is gearing up for a 28 November opening. Keep an eye on its Twitter account for the latest updates.
