Blame Gloria Hits Small Street this Summer

Following the success of two London cocktail bars, Blame Gloria opens a third site in Bristol this Summer.

Following the success of two London cocktail bars, Blame Gloria opens a third site in Bristol this Summer.


Expected to open in late June, Blame Gloria provides a late-night cocktail offering where people can let loose until 3am. The new bar promises to provide an eccentric and super opulent venue, taking inspiration from 1980s groupie culture, acting as a fantasy playground for the rockstars of the era.

Blame Gloria will take over the former Timbuk2 site, a venue offering low arched ceilings, giving a sense of intimacy to a capacity of up to 400 guests. Its extensive list of cocktails, including the signature Sugar Daddy and the colour changing cocktail, Karma Chameleon, will bring the party goers of Bristol back time after time.

For those in proximity of the area, Blame Gloria’s Happy Hour offering creates a perfect hot spot for after work drinks. Running 7-days a week, visitors will receive 2-4-1 cocktails on the full menu.

Founder of Blame Gloria, Tom Kidd says “Gloria always threw the wildest parties, she still does, and we can’t wait to bring her to Bristol.

With our London bars already hugely popular, we’re thrilled to be branching outside of the capital and what better city to do so than the cultural hub of Bristol. The venue poses the perfect layout for Blame Gloria’s eccentric interiors offering a hot spot like no other for the people of Bristol.

Alongside our outstanding cocktail offering, we also have many plans up our sleeve to keep up the momentum post launch. We can’t wait to reveal all over the coming months.

Blame Gloria is currently operating across 3 London venues as part of Adventure Bar Venues. Investors Nightcap now has three sites across two of its brands in Bristol. This included The Cocktail Club on Corn Street and The Triangle.
