COOL LAGERS, LOCAL BEERS, AWARD WINNING COCKTAILS AND FINE WINES
Our buzzing bar is the perfect place to unwind, spend time with friends or get mixing your favourite tipple.
Drink it all in
Here at the Urban Beach we love to create a fresh and exuberant experience for you, our fairest of patrons. Within the bar of our beach home we have an unwavering quest for excellence and wish only to share the joy of creativity and passion of our trade.
We are as obsessed by amazing beverages & cocktails as we are amazing food. We try to move our drinks with the seasons. Reworking and revamping mother nature’s gifts into some purely luxurious cocktails and smoothies. We craft our own version of the quintessential summer cocktail, the Pimms and lemonade… coax out the sun with our homemade iced tea and tailor-made mojitos. The winter warming classics of mulled wine and spiced cider are given an Urban twist, along with many other in-house creations.
We take pride in our evolving our substantial cocktail menu as well as our unique selection of spirits and wines. It is important for us to source our products locally, such as English craft beers and local gins. Our award winning Bloody Mary is a marvel to behold and will wash away a plethora of sin. We adorn our bar with a host of strange and mystical looking vessels that embody our ‘homemade’ ethics.
Our most valued opinions are yours and with personal mixologists who love nothing more than to dazzle and tantalise your taste buds, we can be sure to find a liquid refreshment to suit your every need. So whatever your tipple, be it alcoholic or not… we assure you it shall be intoxicating.
We close our Hotel Bar at 11pm. This is to create the perfect, tranquil surroundings that our boutique hotel inspires, so all our lovely guests get a good night’s sleep. Our building is quirky, bijou and Victorian and soundproofing was not a consideration 100 years ago, so we try and be a tad quieter after sundown.
